Back to news listings

Families are invited to join the creative fun at the Infirmary Medical Museum at the University of Worcester’s City Campus on Saturday 26th October, as the venue hosts an event to mark The Big Draw – an annual, nationwide initiative to get people drawing.

The theme of The Infirmary event is ‘The Future of Medicine’, with visitors invited to take inspiration from the museum’s body models and equipment, which trace 200 years of medicine history in Worcestershire.

Visitors will be able to try their hand at a range of drawing techniques using different mediums, such as pens, pencils, chalks, crayons and inks.

Admission to the event, which will run between 2pm and 4pm, is free, and no pre-booking is required.

The Infirmary’s Kerry Whitehouse says: “The Big Draw is a great idea and a brilliant way for people to explore their creative side. We are excited to see what families have on what the future of medicine could look like.”

The Big Draw festival runs throughout October, and will see over 1,000 organisations in the UK offer events for all ages and abilities. This year, The Big Draw has partnered up with the Family Arts Festival to create the largest festival the UK has ever seen, from October 18th to November 3rd.

The Infirmary exhibition is recommended for those aged seven or above – all children must be accompanied by an adult. Parking on site is for blue badge holders only, but The Infirmary is easily accessible from Pitchcroft car park, or from Severn Terrace or Croft Road.
