Join Dr Harold Halifax on a spooktacular journey through medical history to learn about the improvements in the medical profession over time, from the gruesome Georgians to the vile Victorians!

This historical Halloween workshop is sure to provide your seasonal dose of child-friendly gore. Get hands on identifying herbs and spices, linking symptoms to cures, and even amputating an arm...yes, you read that right!

Interactive performances will take place at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm. These times may vary slightly depending on audience numbers, but Dr Halifax will be roaming around all day, so pop in at any time to say hello!

Booking is not required for this event.
