Being part of history 

19/05/2017 00:00 
Children and CBBC star Chris Van Tulleken joined forces to create history at special engagement event.

Recording experiences, hopes and predictions on special non-degrading paper, these pieces of art will be included in the time capsule that will be buried within the Phase 4 building late this year.

A model of the Proton Beam Therapy machinery, blueprints of the building and cancer treatment plans will be placed in the time capsule.

UCLH archivist, Annie Lindsay wants to add to these items and would like to hear from patients and carers who use UCLH and our staff about what else should be included.

Annie explains: “The best time capsules tell of a moment in time. Please email me your ideas of what we should include. “

“Over the summer, we will review all the ideas and make a decision about which ideas to take forward.”

“I would also like to say a big thank you to Laura Walter, Frances Newman, Spread a Smile and everyone involved for helping to create wonderful event.”

Send your ideas to: . Please use the subject heading Time Capsule.

  • There will be an instruction to open it in 2067.
  • It will be sealed in the building during the autumn of this year.
