Macabre Medicine and Spine Tingling Surgery!


Demonstrations are included within the cost of a standard gardens entry ticket, and are between 12noon and 4pm. Space is limited so please arrive early to avoid disappointment!

Ready your stomachs, Hands on History are back with their fantastic demonstration of medieval surgery and medicine! Enjoy a fun and educational talk about the life and superstitions of the medieval people before Hands on History call upon a volunteer whose leg will sadly need amputating – anaesthesia free! They'll also be a chance for visitors to learn about the medicine of the age and how the medieval people would have used it. A great chance for all the family to get an insight into the grim realities of medieval surgery in a scarily realistic way! (no real legs will be harmed during this demonstration!)

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
