Join Owen Sheers, Swansea University's Professor in Creativity, for a conversation about his recent film-poem To Provide All People, written to mark the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service.

Charting an emotional and philosophical map of the NHS, To Provide All People tells the story of its founding by Aneurin Bevan against the intimate experiences of NHS staff and patients across 24 hours in its life today.

The conversation, chaired by Swansea University’s Dr Francesca Rhydderch, will be followed by a screening of the Vox Pictures/BBC Wales production, featuring an all-star cast including Eve Myles, Michael Sheen, Martin Freeman and Lesley Manville and a Q&A and book signing.
