Event description

Description

Join us for a fantastic evening of talk, live music, Q&A and cake!

Professor Andy Wolf will talk about his work and his solo English Channel swim to raise funds for biological 3D heart printing to help babies born with heart defects. There will also be live instrumental music on a watery theme from local musicians, Q&A with Professor Wolf, and the opportunity refuel with some lovely homemade cakes.

During the evening we will learn about the trials and tribulations of training for and completing an epic swim, from the oldest man to complete the 21mile journey in 2018.

We will also be treated to explanations about the revolutionary 3D printing technology that Prof Wolf is helping to fund-raise for and develop which is enabling surgeons at the Bristol Children's Hospital to print exact models of patients' hearts, so that they can plan and practice complex surgeries. The 3D printing project will also allow surgeons to bio-print using stem-cells, meaning that the implanted organ grows with the child and never needs replacing, giving the child a brighter future with fewer operations and the benefits of returning home to their families sooner.

There will also be musical entertainment in the form of varied live musical interludes of a watery theme.

Every penny of the profits from the evening will be heading directly to the Bristol Children's Hospital to support the work that Professor Wolf will be talking to us about.

We look forward to welcoming you to this fun evening of musical entertainment and fascinating information, suitable for all ages.

Tickets for school age children are free (donations welcome, or just buy a full priced ticket if you're happy to do so). Please call 01454 857110 to let us know if you intend to bring children so that we can save them a seat!
