Roll up, roll up – come down to our pop-up stand and activity sessions to learn more about the life, culture and work of Travelling Showmen and the health and wellbeing challenges that they face as they bring fun to your local community.

Meet our team who will share their new research project which explores the health needs of the Showmen community, a population who are rarely researched and often misunderstood.

The stand will include images from Mary Humphrey’s new photography exhibition, Images from Showmen’s Lives, which opened on our Cambridge campus in September 2022 to celebrate World Funfair Month.

Join us for fun, interactive fairground activities for all the family including hook-a-duck games and activity sheets.

There will also be a chance for health professionals to learn more about partnership working and how best to deliver services to Showmen on the road or in their yards.

There's no need to book for this free event, just drop in.

There are lots of other exciting events happening during the Chelmsford Science Festival, which runs from 12-18 October 2022. Take a look at the full programme and book your free tickets today.
