Come along to a Health Fair with a difference, on Saturday 6 July, 11am – 3pm at the University of Leicester. Have a great day, enjoy fun activities and learn about the health and safety of the ones you love.

The ‘pay as you feel’ event will feature something for everyone, including:
health information and advice

face painting
teddy bear clinic
inflatables
food stalls
Treasure hunt
and much more.

The Leicestershire Partnership Trust, University Hospitals Leicester, Leicester Council’s Public Health Department and other local and community groups will work together to provide advice, help and information on a range of health concerns, offering advice on many different health issues

Teenagers can find out about sexual health, stress relief and feel the effect of beer goggles, while children can engage in activities around issues like dental health, mental wellbeing, school readiness, and hand-washing while taking part in fun health-related activities at the Creation Station or paying a small donation to get their face-painted.

Medical students will run a teddy bear’s clinic, while the Attenborough Arts Centre will hold pottery lessons to demonstrate the benefit of art on mental health. You can receive defibrillator training from Leicester University Community First Responders, and CPR training from HeartWize, as well as find out about careers or further study in medicine and allied health professions.

The Healthy Lifestyle Zone will have a rolling programme of 20-minute Bollywood Dance and Zumba sessions.
Outside the main marquee, our visitors will be entertained by medieval jousting, bouncy castles, lawn games and the Bambino Disco.

There are plenty of picnic areas if you would like to bring your own food, or there will be plenty of refreshments on offer, including healthy picnic boxes for children.

All this to a back-drop of performances from: The Levy’s band, LALU Ukele, the UHL Highs & Lows Diabetes Children’s Choir and the Breathe Easy Choir.

Attend Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust’s annual public meeting, and find out more about local mental health, learning disability and community health services (12-1pm)

Our Health Festival aims to educate people to make positive choices around their own health and wellbeing while providing a fun day out for the whole family.
