Last month the Science Festival, this month the Festival of Museums!

Next week we’ll be taking part in the Centre for Research Collection’s events programme for the Festival of Museums. A really interesting and varied range of activities and talks are on offer (for more details see the blog, One last dance), from swing dance classes and jewellery making to hairstyling.

The events programme has taken its inspiration from St Cecilia’s Hall in Edinburgh, which was a ballroom called the Excelsior in the 1940s, recreated for one last time as part of the Festival of Museums. All the events have a 1940s theme, including our contribution – a talk given by Louise, our Archivist – at 11am on Sunday 18 May. Louise will look at medical advances during the Second World War and the arrival of the NHS towards the end of the decade. If you’d like to book a free place then please click here ( .
