One of the UK’s most colourful art exhibitions, ‘Loudest Whispers’, returns for the 11th year running on Friday 7 February, 5.30pm-8.30pm. The theme of this year’s exhibition, hosted by Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust at St Pancras Hospital, is entitled ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dream’.
The Mayor of Camden and the Mayor of Islington will be VIP guests at the event, which is part of the nationwide LGBT+ History Month. The Loudest Whispers exhibition has exploded in popularity since its launch 11 years ago, and is now a firm fixture on the north London arts calendar, attracting huge crowds from across the country.
The evening, which is organised by The Arts Project and supported by Forum+, will feature music, comedy and the arts inspired by the theme of ‘Poetry, Prose and Plays’ and entertainment from award winning performer of cabaret and comedy, Xnthony and Mark T Cox, and up and coming poet, Keith Jarrett.
It is a chance for LGBT+ artists – both established and amateur - to showcase their work. The Mayors of Camden and Islington will officially open the event at 7pm before a cabaret performance in the main conference centre.
Hosting the event each year is testament to the Trust’s firmly-embedded support for the Camden and Islington LGBT+ Forum and the wider LGBT+ community.
Peter Herbert, Curator Manager of The Arts Project, said: “Our artists range from those in their teens to people aged 80+, with the multi-ethnic cultural diversity of our LGBT+ community reflected in the exhibition. We’re very excited to be showcasing some fantastic pieces of art for the 11th year running.”
Peter added: “The launch night on Friday 7 February will be a fantastic opportunity to celebrate how much Loudest Whispers has achieved over the past 11 years and a chance to highlight 2020’s LGBT+ History Month. Everyone is welcome and the exhibition is not one to be missed!”

In an emergency
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
