Swansea museum exhibition- July/August 2008

Dr Carole Reeves, Outreach Historian with The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, University College London

And the next Children of Craig-y-nos exhibition will take place...

Dr Carole Reeves with the help of Roy and Valerie Harry began work yesterday afternoon setting up the exhibition in Swansea museum.

Carole tells me ( I am down with shingles in Scotland!) that they will be using two corridors. While the space is not ideal it should be possible to put up the whole of the photographic exhibition.

As the museum is in the centre of Swansea and it should attract a lot of visitors, including many ex-patients and those with connections with Craig-y-nos, over the course of the next two months.

It will open on Tuesday morning, July 1st.

Having dismantled the exhibition in Brecon we took it to Swansea museum in March. This photo was taken outside the museum ( from left to right) Valerie Brent , ex nurse, Roy Harry( ex-patient), Ann Shaw ( ex-patient) and Valerie, Roy's partner.
