Elizabeth Crichton - A Woman with a Dream

Friday 31 May, 19:30
£12
Easterbrook Hall, The Crichton, Bankend Road, Dumfries, DG1 4TA

Elizabeth Crichton dreamed of a mental hospital for Dumfries, to treat patients as human beings in need of help. She found just the person to establish this, Doctor William A.F. Browne.

In 1839 the Crichton Mental Hospital opened, becoming arguably the most advanced in Europe.
Patients enjoyed art and music therapy, fresh air and working in the gardens. All this in a beautiful estate.  Yet, some of the local people were not happy.

Actors and musicians tell this fascinating tale, featuring popular Dumfriesshire performer William
Williamson as the inimitable Doctor Browne.
