We’ll also be running a ‘Teddy Bear Hospital’ to teach children about medicine, and performance classes where you can meet your inner actor.

There’ll also be a variety of short talks and workshops where you can find out about our cutting‑edge research. You’ll learn about how our scientists are designing the drugs of the future and uncovering the mysteries of dark matter.
