An exhibition of short films created by our MA Character Animation students has opened in the old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret.

Featuring music by students from Trinity Laban, the films draw on the history of St Thomas’ Hospital from its foundation in the early 1100s to 1862 when it moved to make way for an extension to the London Bridge Railway.

Taking its name, in part, from the ‘foule’ wards used to treat syphilis, a common infectious disease, the exhibition looks at everything from the establishment of the building to some of its strange medical history. Grouped into four periods of the Hospital’s history, each film reflects a story or character associated with that time.

The exhibition is now open until 14 December; visit the event page for the full details.
