Medicine & History Lecture Series


We run a series of Medicine and History lectures on a Saturday every year from October to March. The lectures look at a wide range of factors that have influenced changes in medicine and health, and speakers have been chosen for their lively and entertaining approach.

The lectures are suitable for those with little or no knowledge of the subject. Each session includes two lectures given by different speakers, each with an opportunity for discussion. Lectures start at 10am and finish by 12.30pm.  Delegates can enrol for the whole series or come to individual sessions.

How to book:
Tickets cost £17 for adults and £15 for concessions per session. If you would like to attend every lecture, the whole course costs £93 for adults and £81 for concessions. Friends of the museum receive a 10% discount.
