Two centuries ago showman, scientist and quack ‘Doctor’ Katterfelto, claimed inventor of the “Solar” Microscope and the aerostat toured the country, producing marvels, healing and possibly ripping people off.

Since then his exploits fallen into the dust of collective forget.

Armed with a range of strange and wonderful equipment and properly equipped with exotic specimens from his private museum he ushered in the age of discovery.

See insects the size of dogs, marvel at the levitating balloon, 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.

£10 (£8 concessions) – Tickets will be available on the door.

Recommended age 12+
