Hidden Now Heard | Mencap exhibition


MENCAP are researching Hensol Castle and its past history as a hospital for people with learning disabilities. The exhibition will be based on the oral testimony of former residents, staff and those involved in the resettlement of patients.
By recreating parts of the hospital, incorporating oral histories, artefacts and interactive exhibits the exhibition will provide a personal history of life for people with a learning disability during Hensol’s use as a long stay hospital between 1927 and 2003.
