Meet the man behind the bAKEHOUSE smash hit Visiting Hours as he delves into his doctors bag of tricks and reboots his classic lecture on the astonishing history of anaesthesia... and some very groovy drugs. Join bAKEHOUSE Co-Artistic Director John Harrison in this highly entertaining - and just a little bit bizzaro - tour of the curiosities, quacks and charlatans who made Anaesthesia what it is today. head up to level 4, buy a drink from the bar, and settle into an ornate velvet chair and a night of extreme hilarity

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

“Thoroughly engrossing, and altogether everything that an evening with a difference should be … a shame it was only for one night! You must absolutely do it again. Such a joy!”
