About the event

Take a break from your busy day and join our Collections Volunteers across the country for a free lunchtime tour of the Paintings in Hospitals regional collections, part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2014.

Specially created to provide much-needed comfort and relief, the Paintings in Hospitals loan collection helps patients, visitors and staff to interact and better cope with their environment. From bedsides to hallways, waiting rooms to foyers, every artwork is carefully selected to meet the unique needs of the healthcare environment.

Your tour will include a short talk on the artworks in your local collection: find out exactly why these works have been chosen and hear the fascinating stories behind them.

Tours will take place in London, York, Birmingham, Bury St Edmonds and Cardiff, so keep your eye on the full list on our website and join us on the day!
