The culmination of a six-month programme of creative activity undertaken by thousands of staff in hospitals across England came to a close on the 22 and 23 November with an unprecedented day of performances ranging from music, poetry, visual arts and more in 19 NHS Trusts, followed by a very special, one-off performance directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah at Aviva Studios in Manchester.

You can watch back the live streams via the button below.

Thank you to our funders Arts Council England, NHS Charities Together in partnership with NHS England and to the 19 participating NHS Trusts and their hospital charities. And lastly thank you to all the NHS staff who took part.
