Event description

Description

Join us for a unique look at the bloody work of leeches from medieval times up until the modern age. Throughout the workshop you will get an insight into the quacky use of leeches to cure everything from fever to bad humour, and discover what brought about their resurgence in the 20th century that helped them to become the surgeons new best friend. The workshop will also feature some very important ghoulish guests!

This event is free but registration is a must since there are limited spaces available.

*Access to the Old Operating Theatre and Herb Garret is through a spiral staircase only. It is not wheelchair accessible for now.
