  • The Great NHS $ell Off - film & discussion - Sat, 14 July

    Film screening of The Great NHS $ell Off followed by a Q&A session with committed and (com)passionate defenders of our NHS.

We have film makers, doctors, nursing staff and union members ready to be quizzed, as well as Aneira Thomas - the first baby born into the NHS - coming along to celebrate both her and the NHS' 70th birthday.

    This is a catered Worcestershire LitFest event.
