Charters Restaurant

Royal Preston Hospital, Preston

Client: Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Value: £200K

FWP have created an inviting, modern and bright space at Charters Restaurant, Royal Preston Hospital. The restaurant area has undergone a major makeover which includes a dedicated area where hospital staff can relax and have food and a drink while on shift.

The new space includes a bespoke mural designed by local artist, David Robinson, from DaveRob Design, who was commissioned to create a striking montage of the city’s landmarks, famous people and characters. The artwork was endorsed by Preston-born Nick Park, who gave permission to include one of his most famous creations, Wallace and Gromit, as a thank-you to NHS staff for their efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The refreshed restaurant space, which has seating for around 230 people, also connects directly to a new garden area which includes a beautifully hand-crafted steel memorial tree where names of those who have donated organs will be engraved onto leaves.
