North London Forensic Service is one of the largest NHS medium secure units in the country. Sarah Hill and Robert Halsey describe how the hospital held an inaugural Festival of Culture. With the well‐documented over‐representation of black and minority ethnic (BME) service users in secure hospitals, the event aimed to provide a forum for user involvement and celebration, as well as feeding into the wider race equality agenda. It also provided an opportunity to realise the benefits and value of therapeutic risk taking.
