Medi-Evil Mischief - Friday, 1 October 2010

Half term 23 – 31 October 2010

Dare you visit the Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds, this half term in the run up to the spookiest night of the year – Halloween?

Not for the faint-hearted, Medi-Evil Mischief offers gruesome entertainment for all the family.

On a less grisly note, there’s lots more to help youngsters beat the half-term holiday blues, including horse shows, falconry demonstrations, and have-a-go-sword-fighting sessions.

Medi-Evil Mischief forms part of the Royal Armouries’ Dangerously Entertaining events calendar and runs from Saturday (October 23) to Halloween (Sunday, October 31). Programme highlights include:


October 23, 27 and 30 only

Medicinal mayhem with our medieval medic and his poorly peasant as they roam the Museum juggling and telling stories.

October 24, 27 and 30 only

Have you got the guts to listen to the bloody barber surgeon and his tales of weeping wounds, bubbling boils and putrid pus!

General Museum events will also run as usual, including:
