Writing workshop A&E Frenchay Feb 14 Pic Zuleika Henry.jpg

In May the much loved Frenchay & Southmead hospitals closed and the new, state-of-the-art Brunel Building, opened.

We ran writing workshops with staff at both hospitals and have developed 8 new pieces of work.

Shows in the atrium of the new hospital 11am-5pm SATURDAY 18TH OCTOBER.

  • Legendary neurosurgeon Brian Cummins returns
  • What happened to the souls left behind at Frenchay
  • What’s it like to have your leaving party and then return to give birth?

And 5 more stories of life, love & work at Frenchay & Southmead.
