Join us from the comfort of your home while our team takes you to the Victorian era and goes over the surgical procedures that were done in our space. To understand the dramatic location of our operating theatre in the attic of a church, they will first explore the origins and history of Old St Thomas’ Hospital and a quick overview of the medical profession. Listen as the team delve into the horrors of surgery before the arrival of anaesthesia and antiseptics that helped pave the way to our modern medical procedures.

Shown live from the oldest surviving surgical theatre in Europe, you will see the original space located in the attic of an 18th century church, where up to 150 medical students would have once gathered and learnt their trade. 

You will have the opportunity to ask questions via the ‘chat’ function at the end of the talk.

*All income from ticket sales go to support the upkeep of the museum and the collection.

Every #MondayChallenge brings something new...but today we want to go back to our first puzzle and challenge you to complete it as we have increased the difficulty from 44 to 104 puzzle pieces! Yes! We like this to be a real challenge! Also, since we are on the road to reopening the museum, today's image is that of the operating theatre itself! Pre-dating anaesthesia and antiseptics, it is the oldest surviving surgical theatre in Europe. Go to puzzle  and book your visit via our links in bio! 😀

Join us on Thursday, 27 of May, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, for a fascinating conversation between Owen Gower, the museum manager of Dr Jenner’s House, Museum and Garden in Gloucestershire, as we discuss the influential work of Dr Edward Jenner, the pioneer of vaccinations. This was the man who effectively carried out what we could now consider to be the first clinical trials, in the use of Cowpox to protect against Smallpox. In doing so he set the scene for the development of vaccinations for the eradication of Smallpox, the only human disease we have ever completely wiped out. He set the scene for everything that is happening in public health today. This conversation promises to be very insightful and relevant as the world is in the process of vaccinating their populations against Covid-19. What can the past teach us about today?

You will have the opportunity to ask questions via the ‘chat’ function at the end of the conversation.

*All income from ticket sales will be evenly split between the Old Operating Theatre Museum & Herb Garret and Dr Jenner’s House, Museum & Garden, both registered charities and in need of your support after the Covid-19 closures.
