Create your own pomander, explore the plants of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) medicinal garden, get hands-on with medical history, and more in this creative half-term workshop.

The RCP and the Old Operating Theatre have combined forces to provide a fascinating and fun morning at the RCP’s home next to Regent’s Park. Children will have the opportunity to learn about how medicine was practiced in the past from blood-letting and cupping to pomanders and potions. The workshop will include an introduction to our museum collections and the fascinating plants of the RCP medicinal garden. Then creative activities including creating their own pomanders and trying their hand at smelly bingo!

The suggested age for attending children is 7–11 years but all are welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event but accompanying adults can attend free. The event runs from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm.

Venue ( Address ): 

11 St Andrews Pl, London NW1 4LE
