We have a host of activity to get your whole family moving, playing, and discovering this summer as Thackray celebrates turning 25!
For everyone – Bones, Bodies & Beats
Our friends at Balbir Singh Dance Company are back for a series of dance workshops exploring bones, muscles and movement through the company’s unique blend of contemporary western dance and classical Indian Katha.
Discover the amazing ways medics tune into the sounds and movements going on inside our bodies, before creating your own piece of performance in a series of bespoke workshops.

For the Budding Historians – Daily Talks and Tours
Join our team of medical aficionados on specially curated tours and talks of some of the fascinating objects that make up our collections.
