Life festival is a celebration of the innovative medicine, dentistry and health research taking place in Sheffield. There will be hands-on activities, interactive lab demos, free health checks, theatrical performances, sporting events, film screenings and talks from our researchers on the latest medical discoveries.

Life festival is organised by the University of Sheffield in partnership with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The festival is open to everyone and there are events for all ages. Entry is free – except that fees apply for the Varsity 10K race and The York pub quiz.

You’ll need to book a place for some events via the website – please check the event details.

Come along and find out how we’re making it better in Sheffield and around the world.
