The Cambridge Biomedical Campus exerts an increasing influence over the rest of our neighbourhood – but how much do you know about what goes on there? Join us on Sunday 12th May for a free guided social walk around the site for local residents. If the weather is good, we can have a rest and a picnic on the newly-opened Green and Gardens space.
The Queen Edith’s Community Forum last visited the Campus for a walk in 2017. Building has continued at speed since then, and further plans are emerging for Cambridge South railway station and additional development plots. Some 26,000 staff will work at the site in a decade’s time, serving 25,000 patients and visitors a day. Come and assess the progress so far, and take a look into the future!
We will be joined by Dr David Skinner, local resident and sociologist at Anglia Ruskin University, to explore the tensions between global forces promoting the Campus and their effects on the local area.
The walk is free, and no booking is necessary; just turn up on the day. It will leave from Nightingale Park pavilion at 10.30am. Don’t be late!
