An opportunity to see artwork previously displayed at Whitby Community Hospital

Published: 02 November 2021 to 31 December 2098

We’re pleased to invite members of the local community to view the artwork collection previously displayed at Whitby Community Hospital.

The exhibitions are free to attend and take place on 27th and 28th November 2021 at The Coliseum, between 10am and 4pm, and at Pannett Art Gallery from the 1st to 5th December 2021, between 10:30am and 4:30pm.

As you may know, Whitby Community Hospital is undergoing refurbishment, set to complete in Spring 2022. As part of this, artworks previously displayed across all site buildings have been taken down.

Our Whitby Hospital Artwork Task and Finish Group is working together with NHS Property Services to provide an exciting opportunity for the community to see the artwork and celebrate its significance. 

The refurbished hospital has a modern look and feel, and therefore most of the artwork will not be re-displayed. We therefore hope to hear from the community about where they might be best placed in the future and is dedicated to ensuring that the history of the artwork is recorded.

Doff Pollard, Whitby Governor, said:

“The exhibitions will provide an opportunity for anyone who holds information about the artwork, or the personnel listed in the Roll of Honour book, to come forward and tell us about them, or anything connected to the history of Whitby Hospitals.

As the exhibition at The Coliseum coincides with the Whitby Christmas Festival on the 27th and 28th November, we hope that local people will take the time to visit, look around and have their say.”

There will also be an opportunity for the public to learn a little bit more about their local hospital refurbishment, the Whitby Hospital Fundraising Appeal and how they can continue to get involved.
