Edward Jenner and John Hunter: the Apprentice and his Sorcerer

Wednesday 27 September, 7:30pm

A talk by Professor Gareth Williams, author of ‘Angel of Death: the Story of Smallpox’:

In 1770, the 21-year-old Edward Jenner went to London to complete his medical training under John Hunter, the anatomist and resurrectionist who would later be recognised as the ‘father of experimental surgery’. Jenner fell under the spell of the charismatic surgeon extraordinary to King George III, while Hunter was captivated by the potential of the young man who quickly became his star pupil.

Tickets cost £5. Please note this talk is in the Old Cyder House Conference Centre at the museum. Doors open at 7pm.

The King is Dead, Long Live the King!

Wednesday 25 October, 7:30pm

Kings and Queens may well have suffered the same diseases as anyone else, but how did they fare when they could access healthcare well beyond the reach of others? And why did some monarchs claim to be healers themselves? Join us for a journey through the history of royal maladies.

Tickets cost £5. Please note this talk is in the Old Cyder House Conference Centre at the museum. Doors open at 7pm.
