Welcome to the Brandesburton Hospital oral history project. In late 2015, Purple Patch Arts and University of Leeds were awarded a grant of £40,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to gather the personal stories of people connected to Brandesburton Hospital in East Yorkshire. This includes past residents and staff, family members and those in the communities local to the hospital to share their memories.
Over the course of the year, we will be bringing you blog posts, news items, photographs and a whole host of other information as we work on the project. If you are interested in taking part, you find information on how to do this here too.
