Sheila Ghelani + guests: Nurse Knows Best


Drop in

Saturday 18 February 2017 - Sunday 19 February 2017

“Broken hearts are sewn up and troubled spirits soothed” - the Guardian

Nurse Knows Best invites you to take a quick pit stop - to lie back, relax and think about how you treat yourself. It’s really quite nice. You’ll play patient, we’ll play nurse. We’ve got some thoughts and some flowers, some advice and some smiles. Some treats and some sponges. Some sprays and some wiles. Don’t you worry about a thing. Now just slip these off and rest your weary heart down... Let’s start with your self - it needs some attention.

Ages 12+, 15 min duration.
