Purple Day 2019

Purple Day 2019

We were delighted to mark Purple Day 2019 with the opening of a special art exhibition, put together by our clients of The Drawing Room.

Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy worldwide. On March 26th annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness. Last year, people in dozens of countries on all continents including Antarctica participated in Purple Day!

The Drawing Room staff and clients worked tirelessly to create some fantastic art pieces, each focusing on different elements of epilepsy. some focused on epilepsy itself and what it's like to live with the condition, whereas some chose to focus on what it feels like to have a seizure, or their memory of first being diagnosed. 

We celebrated with the cutting of a ribbon, opening up the corridor to everyone to view the artwork at their own pace. We then hosted tea and cake in the Bull & Bush to all of our guests!

The fantastic artwork is on display indefinitely in our main corridor, so please do take some time to have a look if you are here visiting!
