Free event Family friendly


Come along to the Mental Health Museum to help us mark Fieldhead at 50 – Fieldhead Hospital’s 50th anniversary!

Fieldhead Hospital opened in the 1970s so join us as we step back in time to experience the food, music, fashion and images of the decade that changed Britain. Our family-friendly 1970s themed event will explore the first 50 years of Fieldhead Hospital’s history with guided tours and craft activities.

Find out how mental health care has evolved and discover the stories of people who have worked at and accessed services at Fieldhead through our unique and thought-provoking collection.

Guided tours of the Museum at 11am, 12:30pm and 2pm – book your visit by emailing or call us Tuesday-Thursday on 01924 316360!
