NHS 70th anniversary

Join the University of Leicester and local NHS Trusts for a FREE family fun day celebrating the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service.

  • When: Saturday 7 July 2018, 11.00am-3.00pm
  • Where: University of Leicester campus

The official NHS70 celebration date is Thursday 5 July so we have arranged our event for the following Saturday to make sure that as many people as possible can attend. Come along and enjoy:

  • Musical performances
  • Health advice and checks
  • Children’s activities
  • Science experiments
  • First aid demonstrations
  • Arts and crafts
  • Food and drink
  • Charity stalls
  • Table tennis (all day) and family cricket
  • And a Teddy Bears Clinic - a fun event that helps children understand what happens on a visit to the doctor

More details about what's on...

Free parking will be available in the Welford Road car-park. You are also welcome to cycle to this event; there are bicycle racks outside the Students' Union, underneath the Attenborough Tower and at many other locations across campus.

Entry is free, but we will ask visitors to donate whatever they like towards the two local NHS charities below.

It will help us plan the event if we have an idea of numbers attending so we encourage you to register your interest on Eventbrite.
