Festival of Museums: A Scandal in Surgeons' Hall, in partnership with The University of Edinburgh

24 April 2015

We are delighted to announce that tickets are now available for our Festival of Museums event that we are hosting in partnership with the University of Edinburgh Anatomy Museum. 

On Saturday the 16th of May, come and join us for an evening of dark entertainment at Surgeons’ Hall – music, dancing, magic and mystery all included!  We’re hosting a scandalous evening of surprise and suspense inspired by the collections from The Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh and the University of Edinburgh Anatomy Museum.

You are invited to dance the night away with our ceilidh band; solve a mystery with our Victorian crime scene; find out what your future holds with our fortune teller; be amazed by our magician; and much more.

This one off spectacular event will inspire and astonish you – expect to see the dark side of Edinburgh and our collections…

Guests are invited to dress to impress in a Victorian/Steampunk inspired outfit.

This event is part of the Festival of Museums programme.
