The Georgians’ Marvellous Medicines

November 16, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

An hour of comedy and capers for all of the family. Georgian actress Mistress Slurp needs your help finding the perfect prescription for pimples and pox. Join in a family-friendly treasure hunt discovering ingredients for Slurp’s remedies, or simply sit back and enjoy the show exploring the surprising secrets of 18th century remedies. Delivered with the assistance of a team of academics from Northumbria University’s Leverhulme-funded ‘Writing Doctors’ project.

The comedy show will run twice, once at 10:00 and again at 14:00. The treasure hunt will run all day.

Booking for this event is essential in order to waive the National Trust admission charge.
