Summer Fair 2018


Come and celebrate the NHS's 70th birthday!

The NHS is turning 70 on 5 July 2018 and here at Medway we will be marking the occasion with a number of activities involving our staff and local community. The centrepiece of our celebrations will be a summer fair on Saturday 7 July, during the anniversary week.  We are looking forward to opening our doors and holding our first summer fair for some years to celebrate 70 years of our NHS!

There will be face painting, games, refreshments, live entertainment with dance performances from Razzmatazz Medway Theatre School and Bollywood dancers, a raffle and plenty of stalls to browse. We will be exhibiting artwork about what the NHS means to children today from local schools, and running our very own Great NHS Birthday Bake Off competition. It’s also a great opportunity to meet our staff and find out more about the fantastic services we provide. Come along for a great family day out.

The Fair will be open from 11am - 3pm with free admission and free parking during this time, and takes place at Medway Maritime Hospital, Windmill Road, Gillingham, ME7 5NY. For more information or details of how to enter the Bake Off competition, please call 01634 825398 or email 

All proceeds from the Fair will go towards The Medway Hospital Charity.
