This is a unique after hours event that will take you back in time to witness a mock Victorian surgical demonstration presented within the original architecture of the old operating theatre of St. Thomas’s Hospital dated to 1822. Before the advent of anaesthesia, an operation had to be swift. Without hand-washing or antiseptics, the chance of later infection was high.
“Most likely to: be assured of a Golden Future.” The Guardian After 12 years of quietly sending ripples through the independent music scene, David Ward’s latest, a cinematic and soulful opus, Violet, Gold + Rose, has garnered support from some of the most respected artists in music. Ward has spent the last two years between Vancouver, London and Berlin, building on the success of his last album, Transitioning. The run has included opening slots for grammy-winner Lisa Fischer, Becca Stevens, Jacob Collier, and a sold-out show at London’s historic Union Chapel with fellow Canadian, Frazey Ford.
