NNUH Open Day and Fete to celebrate 10 year anniversary
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital will be holding an Open Day and Fete, from 11am to 4pm on Saturday 18th June 2011, to celebrate 10 years at the Colney Lane site.
Visitors will be able to see what goes on behind the scenes at the hospital, browse the fete stalls or look around the careers fair. The event is being sponsored by Fujifilm. There will be free entry and free car parking on the day.
As part of the 10th anniversary, a Battle of Britain flypast takes place at 12.50pm.
Chairman David Prior said: We want to showcase some of the excellent work that goes on within the hospital and give the public a chance to see areas that would not usually be open to them. This year we will also be running a hospital fete alongside the open day in aid of our Norwich Cots for Tots appeal.
Key attractions at the open day include seeing a live surgery demonstration, being able to walk through a giant inflatable colon, and taking part in a healthy eating Bush Tucker Trial. Visitors will be able to meet Fred the Pharmacy Robot, see samples under the microscope in Pathology, visit the Heart Attack Centre and make a plaster mould of their hand at the Colney Centre
There will be lots of activities for children at the fete, including face painting, a bouncy castle and games. Plants, books, crafts and homemade cakes will be available for visitors to buy with all the funds going to the Norwich Cots for Tots charity. Stalls selling Norfolk produce will showcase the best food and drink available in the county and refreshments, including a Hog Roast, will also be available for visitors.
A 5km run is also taking place at 10am on Saturday 18th June 2011 as part of the open day. This event has been organised by Active Norfolk.
