We are very excited to share our jam-packed programme of music and dance from across the globe, in our upcoming (newly branded) Breathing Spaces Summer season. A host of exceptional artists, musicians, singers and dancers bring colour and vibrancy to both the public and hidden spaces of Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals – whether you need to be uplifted, relaxed or inspired, we have something to do just that!

Back by popular demand, Sherika Sherard returns to our live lunchtime performances with a voice like velvet, as well as firm favourites Sugar Kings celebrating the rhythms of the Cuban countryside. Vera The Diva transforms Central Hall into a dance floor bringing bundles of ballroom fun and making her first Breathing Spaces appearance, Multi-Instrumentalist Liza Bec fills Guy’s Atrium with a special soundscape.

Continuing our commitment to improve the wellbeing of staff and patients across Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust through a range of participatory arts opportunities, we are excited to be developing a new Singing for Breathing Group. The monthly songful sessions are designed to support breath control, increase energy and boost confidence for patients with respiratory conditions. Outside of the walls of Guy’s and St Thomas’, our GSTFT NHS staff community choir Trust Harmonix will be guest performers at musical London landmark, St John’s Smith Square for The MyCool Foundation annual choir concert in August. Book tickets here for an unmissable Summer’s evening of heartfelt renditions of jazz, soul and pop classics.

For all of our July-September Performing Arts events including our full Breathing Spaces line up, head to our timetable or check out our new digital brochure.
