Trust me I'm a Barber-Surgeon!

24 September 2017

Date: Sunday 24 September 2017

Time: 1pm

Location/venue: Old Court , Town Hall

Tickets: £5

A fun, educational show for all the family.

Need your hair cutting? A tooth pulling? Blood-letting or your leg off? Barber-surgeons were a brutish and largely unqualified bunch placed at the very bottom of the medical pecking order, way below doctors and apothecaries. They would often travel from town to town offering their services at fairs and other public events – like this festival. So, if you need something attending to, Master Smee, the Barber Surgeon will be pleased to oblige… and it won’t hurt him a bit!
