Barnaby Festival Success

Over 400 visitors ascended to the 4th floor of Waters Green as part of the 2 day Barnaby Festival celebrations and were treated to a colourful array of canvasses, contributed by staff from all areas of the service.  An abundance of talent was on display in a wide variety of media – from cross-stitch to watercolour!  The feedback received was overwhelmingly positive and most enthusiastic. Visitors were amazed by the range and depth of hidden talent and were surprised to see the “human” side to the professionals who they are more used to seeing in a clinical setting.

I would just like to say a huge “Thank you” to all the artists and helpers who took part – we couldn’t have done it without you.  Special thanks to Craig Barker for doing such a great job hanging the pictures – a work of art in itself!
