Celebrate St John’s Day with us

Join us on Saturday 22 June in Paternoster Square for our annual celebration of St John’s Day – a day to celebrate our past and present for the whole family.

What’s on

Come along and enjoy our free fun activities!

Learn first aid from our trainers

Learn essential first aid skills live from our highly skilled trainers.

We'll be providing demonstrations on:

  • • how to help if someone is choking 
  • • how to help if someone needs a bandage
  • • baby and adult CPR
  • • the recovery position

All essential skills in becoming a life saver. You’ll also get the chance to practice what you’ve learned as well as use some of our equipment!

Tour a 1929 ambulance versus a 2018 ambulance

Take a trip back in time where you can see one of our vintage ambulances and compare it to one of the newest ambulances in our fleet.

Get into uniform as old as World War One

Have your photo taken in historic nursing uniforms from World War One, which show how nursing and caring has changed over the years.

Meet a Badger for the first time

Meet and take photos with our mascot Bertie Badger and learn more about what our young St John volunteers get up to.

Dance along to a live band

Experience the magic of The Wilnecote St John Ambulance Band as they perform classics old and new.

Take part in our Treasures puzzle

Put the missing pieces together to get a picture-perfect view of our number one treasure.

The St John bar is coming

We are thrilled to announce the opening, for one day only, of the St John in Paternoster Square. Working with our friends at Fuller’s, you can raise a glass to St John Ambulance and all our people who give such service to their communities.
