Description

Film Event

In 2018, Royal Papworth Hospital – the world-renowned heart and lung hospital in Cambridgeshire – is celebrating its centenary year as well as preparing for a historic move to a new hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. To mark 100 years of this extraordinary institution, this film tells the fascinating story of how the hospital grew from a tuberculosis ‘colony’ to a leading heart and lung hospital, which now performs more heart and lung transplants than any other hospital in the UK. Blending archive footage with contemporary interviews with staff, patients and supporters, Papworth: A Moving Story offers a unique insight into this pioneering hospital as it mark its centenary and looks towards the future.

This special screening at Papworth Village Hall is not the first film screening to be held in the Village Hall. Regular film nights were once held here for tuberculosis patients living in the village, and it is in the spirit of this tradition that we invite you to join us for two free screenings of Papworth: A Moving Story.

A number of tickets will be available on the day for both screenings on a first-come, first-served basis. The Papworth Brewery and Courtyard Cafe will also be there to provide refreshments.

This film and screenings were made possible with a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Papworth Hospital Charity.

You can watch the trailer here.
