In celebration of the NHS’s 75th anniversary, the Thackray Museum of Medicine is hosting a special “Heroes in Training” event this July.
“Heroes in Training: Celebrating 75 years of the NHS” is a special event taking place over two weekends in July.
In collaboration with Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust, the event aims to honour the extraordinary legacy of the National Health Service and inspire the next generation of healthcare professionals.
From Saturday 1 – Sunday 9 July 2023, everyone is invited to enjoy a range of activities and experiences at the Thackray Museum of Medicine.
The event will be especially exciting for families, with children gaining free entry by dressing up as their personal “health hero”. Fancy dress options will also be available on -site for those who need them.
The event will feature the “75 Faces of the NHS Trail”, where visitors can explore the museum while discovering the fascinating stories of the individuals featured in the campaign.
Staff members from the NHS 75 Faces initiative will be present to engage with visitors and inspire them to pursue careers in healthcare.
There will also be free of charge Eye Dissection workshops lead by expert instructors, a Health Hero Craft and Colouring Station and special prizes being awarded to the best fancy dress costumes.
