Gloucestershire Hospitals Light up for International Midwives Day

Evenlode Films and Productions were hugely proud to have been asked to produce a private film and animation which we projected spectacularly onto the Tower Block at Gloucester Royal Hospital in celebration of International Midwives Day on 5 May 2020.

Professor Steve Hams, Director of Quality and Chief Nurse said: “We are delighted to be celebrating International Day of the Midwife in such an innovative way this year. We would like to thank Evenlode Films and Productions, a Cheltenham-based production company for their generosity…”

‘I am a Gloucestershire Midwife’,  was projected onto 7 stories of the tower block building for 7 minutes. Built in the 1970’s it was the perfect canvas for Evenlode to sketch out and celebrate the world of the midwife using animation, film and the projection-mapping.  We were honoured to have been joined by Professor Steve Hams and the Chief Midwife and Divisional Director of Quality and Nursing, Vivien Mortimore to watch the private installation. We were also lucky to have a virtual visit by the Chief Midwifery Officer for England, Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent, who was transported to Gloucester via a giant iPhone.

The live stream video to date has reached 135k views on social media, which is fantastic for the Hospitals’ Trust.  Some of you may have noticed that we also had the Cheltenham and Stroud Hospitals lit up in a stunning Pink and Blue as part of the celebration.  We are passionate about showing our appreciation for the NHS and were very proud to have produced this for our County.  View the full video of ‘I am a Gloucestershire Midwife’ on: , where we also have interviews from the day.


On 12th May we are celebrating with GHFT  “International Nurses Day”.  Did you know that it has been 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale?  We will be posting in the Chamber’s Newsletter after the event, but do follow Evenlode Films on Twitter (Evenlode_UK), Linkedin ( for updates and video footage.

IMPORTANT:  Please do not attend on the 12th May to view the projection. #stayhomesaveslives

The support and networking opportunities that the Chamber offered to me as director of a new business really appealed. The board and members I spoke to seemed really interested in my business.
