Quacks and Cures: new and improved!

Show Navigation

By | From the Collections

Friday 4th June sees the return of Wellcome Collection’s hugely popular Quacks and Cures all-building spectacular. The event aims to present a snapshot of some of the opinions and ideas threaded through three centuries of medical history.

Friday’s event will see a new line-up, including Hope Springs Eternal, a talk on medical spas and waters by Medical London’s Dr Richard Barnett, as well as the return of the advice panel spanning three centuries of practitioners, which will now be relocated to the more stately atmosphere of the Wellcome Library due to its popularity last year. We are very excited to be welcoming science writer and broadcaster Dr Simon Singh who will be speaking in the auditorium. The hugely popular leeches will be making a return visit too.

For those who missed the event, have a look at this short clip on our first event here on the Wellcome Collection site.

The event is free and there is no need to book.
