About this Event

Take a step back into the peculiar past, enter the Victorian Era to meet the Doctor, Matron and nurse for a side splitting show exploring the historical diagnosis and treatments for Mental Health, in the Time Travel Treatment Room!

Be astounded by the practices of yesteryear as the Doctor will educate you on his genius work within the Asylum and “forward thinking” strategies. You will soon be rolling your eyes with the Matron as absurd opinions and factual fights commence.

Laugh and sigh with disbelief - and relief - that mental health care has come so far!

So come along and learn the perplexing process of cold water hydrotherapy, Phrenology and the dreaded lobotomy in this crazy history lesson with a twist.
