Our guts don’t get the attention they deserve.

Guts UK are the only charity funding research into the digestive system from top to tail – the gut, liver and pancreas.

Our vision is of a world where digestive disorders are better understood, better treated and everyone who lives with one gets the support they need. 

Our mission is to provide expert information, raise awareness of digestive health and fund research into diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas.

There are a limited number of tickets available. To reserve your free tickets, click through to our Eventbrite page here.

This event is kindly supported by Love Your Gut, and falls just before Love Your Gut Week. This week runs from 16-22nd September and aims to highlight the vital role of the digestive system and emphasise the importance of good gut health. Stay tuned for more!
