Event Details

Throughout history, there have been Quacks, Cranks Charlatans and Showmen who lurked in the shadows of science.

From flat earthers enthusiasts to dodgy medics via down-right fraudsters and just plain liars, Ian Dunne explains a multitude of crackpot theories that have rattled around and echo down to this day.

The Great Katterfelto and his demonic cat, through to our own times, there have been some profoundly strange ideas.

Accessibility info:-

Events are generally suitable for adults, young people and older children - children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, however. Young children are also welcome to come along but be aware some poems and songs may contain adult content (although we try to keep these until after children have left!)

Most events are held on our first floor, accessible by a wide staircase with a sturdy banner. Comformatable seating is provided.  We regret that, due to space and other constraints, we are generally unable to relocate our events to the ground floor for those who require ground level access - so sorry

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Events are open to all ages unless otherwise stated, however please note that our mission is to provide creative activity primarily to adults, therefore most of our programme is aimed at 16 years and over.  Performances may include stronger language.
