happiness e1708013336510 - Celebrating Summer on Campus!

It may have taken a while to arrive this year, but summer is finally here on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and we have an exciting series of free events to celebrate the sunshine.

All of our events are completely free and open to everyone, whether you’re a patient, staff or a member of the public, as we aim to bring together our whole community to interact, meet new people or simply make the most of our green spaces.

All the events listed below are held on The Green and The Gardens, in front of the Royal Papworth Hospital and AstraZeneca’s Discovery Centre, behind Addenbrooke’s Hospital. Find it here on Google Maps or here on What3Words.
