Back to news listings

The Infirmary Medical Museumís creepy past will be brought to life next week, with a range of Halloween activities taking place to entertain the whole family.

Between 11am and 4pm on Thursday 31st October, there will be guided tours of the former hospitalís darkened corridors, with visitors being treated to tales of the resident ghosts, as well as spine-chilling storytelling sessions.

For the younger visitors, there will be cat and bat trails through the museum, and the chance to make some scary microbes.

Alongside the Halloween activities, The Infirmary exhibition will be open all day, with visitors able to find out about the people who worked or stayed in the hospital as well as trying their hand at a range of interactive activities including assembling body organs or having a go at the amputation station.

Carol Bowsher, Learning and Access Officer at The Infirmary, says: ďThis will be a really fun day for all the family with plenty of activities, as well as the chance to experience the darker side of our Infirmary tours.Ē

Admission to the exhibition and the Halloween events is free, with no pre-booking required. The exhibition is suitable for ages seven and above, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Parking on site is for blue badge holders only, but The Infirmary is easily accessible from the Pitchcroft car park, or from the city centre.
