WhAT IS RAREFEST20?

FREE to attend, RAREfest20 is a full day Cambridge Rare Disease Network festival featuring interactive hands-on exhibits showcasing cool science, visionary technology, and pioneering organisations improving lives and bringing hope to those affected by rare diseases.
Alongside the science and technology exhibition there’ll be inspiring talks from experts and powerful patient voices, rare disease inspired art and films.

Open to patients, families, children, students, healthcare professionals, researchers and companies,. Whether expert or curious, all are welcome!
WhAT DID VISITORS THINK OF RAREFEST18?
Heartwarming, uplifting and informative, the world’s first-ever festival on rare diseases drew huge crowds to the Guildhall over the weekend of November 30 & December 1, 2018.
The event was absolutely fantastic. It was obvious how much hard work had gone into it and gaining the balance between industry and public interest must have been a tough navigation, which was pulled off unbelievably well.
Lots of people we’ve spoken to today are passers-by. They’re out doing their Christmas shopping. That’s wonderful because it means the topic is broadening out to the wider community.
