26th May 2013 - 26th May 2013
Join us for a family fun day celebrating everything that's horrible at Aston Hall!
Visit Aston Hall on Sunday 26th May for a day exploring the less pleasant bits of history.
Meet a Barber Surgeon and find out about Civil War wounds and horrible medicines. Take a look down a microscope and find out about the pests eating the Hall and its objects today. Join AnimalMania to handle bugs and beasts. Take a trail to spot the bugs or to find out about the revolting side of life in the past. Join in a craft activity and make your own medicine book or rat to take home!
Lots to do all day. The event runs from 12-4pm and costs £2 per person - this covers entry to the Hall and to all activities.
