Drama & Creative Writing

Despite the challenges of remote working, we’ve collaborated with new and old partners to bring theatre, magic, creative writing and performance to our hospital community.



Captain Fantastic

We are excited to have recently started working with Captain Fantastic! They are now delivering some rather silly, fun and magical workshops to our Paediatrics unit! They bring interactive magic shows to children and young people being treated at the trust, live through zoom every week.



Creative Writing

Creative writing is a fantastic tool for promoting mindfulness as well as creativity. our Arts Engagements Manager Megan Bastable has started running creative writing workshops for Oncology patients at the Trust, using her experience as a playwright and facilitator. You can see a video workshop by Megan below if you would like to have a go at a bit of poetry writing yourself!
