From Flanders Field to Bath, Tales from the War Hospital, a series of nine stories commemorating the hospital which was built on the Combe Down site 100 years ago and commissioned by Bath Hospital, can now be heard online.
The project – the first literary commission by Bath Hospital Radio in its 50 year history – coincides with the Acts of Kindness exhibition curated by Art at the Heart which runs at the Royal United Hospital until mid October and marks the war hospital centenary.
Bath Hospital Radio volunteer Clare Reddaway commissioned local writers who have performed regularly at Story Friday, the live literature event she runs at Burdall’s Yard in Bath.
Patients at the Royal United Hospital and Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases and listeners online can hear one of the nine stories every morning at 11am until 13 October.
But now the stories are available to listen to below and at Bath Hospital Radio’s Soundcloud page:
