NEW Limited Edition Prints
Dazzling new limited edition prints by Kate Bright
Following her beautiful suite of commissioned paintings for Vital Arts at Barts, our latest print 'Avenue' by Kate Bright raises money for Alzheimer Research UK. The artist has hand finished each of these works with her signature use of glitter which she has built up on the print's surface - lending it three-dimensional quality that sparkles and catches surrounding light.

Oriole at Barts
Vital Arts Summer Concert Series
What an incredible lovely afternoon we had with Oriole at Barts last week. As part of our Summer Concert Series jazz musicians - a Spanish guitar, clarinet and cello - toured the radiotherapy lounge, chemotherapy treatment areas and wards, much to the amusement of patients and staff. We're delighted Oriole will be back on 5 July as part of our partnership with City of London Festival.
