instead we will offer a reduced programme of external lectures through partner organisations.


Upcoming events

Wednesday 6 December 2017, 2-3pm

Operations as Theatre

Based on the Greek word theasthai meaning ‘behold’, operating theatres have traditionally been as much spaces for viewing by many observers as their non-medical counterparts. From public dissections in spaces designed by theatrical architects, to the flamboyance and spectacle of early surgery and our own modern obsession with operations on television; Professor Vishy Mahadevan explores the theatrical side of the operation.

This is a free event but advanced registration is essential via Eventbrite

This event will take place at the London Metropolitan Archives, Clerkenwell, London

Up Close and Medical: Discover London's Medical museums

Try your hand at Victorian pill making, wince at sixteenth century forceps and test your surgical skills with the London Museums of Health and Medicine.

Discover the more surprising side of London’s medical history at this trade fair with a difference. Handle objects from centuries past and join workshops ranging from suturing to spoken word poetry.

Be fascinated by thirteen of London's medical museums, all in one place in the Royal College of Nursing's historical 1920s building. As well as a chance to explore the collections of each of these museums, there will be workshops that test your surgical skills, poetry sessions and a chance to find out more about your own family history.

Up close and medical is being held as part of the Museums at Night festival which runs from 26th - 28th October. Find out more about Museums at Night on their web page.

This event is free, open to all and family friendly.
