The October half term is nearly upon us. So what better way to keep those inquisitive minds (young and old) active, than by visiting the Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret Museum.

Our Pumpkin Pathology Trail is back in person, after going virtual last year. Book your ticket to the museum and then pick up a trail… can you find all 7 diseased pumpkins hidden around the museum and identify what ails them? If you get all the questions correct, you will receive a much sought-after sticker.

And for our older visitors, how about an evening of Gothic Horror? That’s right, on Sunday 31st October, join us for our very first live and in-person event since before lockdown in March 2020, for a glass of wine, a gruesome tour of the museum, followed by a performance from Rupert Mason of gothic horror tales written by some of the greatest authors of the Victorian era. Find out more and book your ticket here.
