Bethlem Gallery

11th May – 4th June 2016

This year’s annual Unescorted exhibition showcases artwork by patients who have used medium secure services at Bethlem Royal Hospital, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Bracton Centre, Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust.

The exhibition marks the first time the two neighbouring services have collaborated together to celebrate the talents of patients past and present. The artwork on display crosses a variety of creative media, including live music performances from Key Changes at the opening event.
