Explore the Kurious Kabinet of Dr Katterfelto (and his necromantic cat) with science presenter Ian B Dunne as your guide.

Two hundred years ago the real-life showman, scientist and charlatan ‘Doctor’ ‘Professor’ ‘Colonel’ Gustavus Katterfelto, claimed to have invented the ‘Solar’ Microscope and the aerostat and was renowned for his proetic, stenographic, balensical and caprimantic delights. (Made-up words designed to impress?) Since then his exploits have fallen into the dust of collective oblivion.

Armed with a range of strange and wonderful equipment, and supplied with exotic specimens from his private museum, Dr Katterfelto helped usher in the age of discovery. See insects the size of dogs, marvel at the levitating balloon and tremble before the demonic cat!

Recreating, examining and investigating the mystery, quackery and discovery of the Age of Enlightenment, Ian B Dunne will channel the good doctor to bring some of the age of wonder to new audiences, to enlighten and entertain.

Great wonders! Strange wonders! Unearthly wonders! Hidden wonders! All now able to be seen by you.

This show is a world premiere that will be also coming to Brighton Fringe later in the year.
