Busy, busy

Got to say that the newly re-opened Bath Medical Museum has hit the ground running, After a very successful ‘open house’ event during the October Half Term the venue is now  inviting visitors to share in a FREE weekend Festival of International Wellbeing. 

It will reflect on the medical effectiveness of Bath’s famous hot spring waters in the context of Georgian extravagance, Japanese and Chinese relaxation activities and  wholesome recipes for good living from around the world. As well as a small exhibition of how we can learn from The Romans to improve and aid our own healthy living.  

On Sunday afternoon November 26th at 1pm and 2pm you can take tea with Alyssa who is a visiting student at Bath College, from Tokyo. She will be modelling a kimono and explaining its significance as part of a healthy, lifestyle and hosting a ‘total involvement/immersion’ of Japanese tea ceremony with a detailed explanation. The event is suitable for children over ten and accompanying families. It will last for approximately one hour including, the Kimono explanation. (maximum ten places, booking is essential  at enquiries@bathmedicalmuseum.org) There will be a small contribution of £5 per person to cover costs

On Saturday afternoon November 25th visitors can take an afternoon stroll with Lady Hetty Hetling at1pm, 2pm and 3pm.  Maximum 12 places book  now at enquiries@bathmedicalmuseum.org

Join Bath’s friendliest society hostess of 1 Hetling Court. She will greet visitors and extol the virtues of ‘taking the waters’ at her home, snuggled close to The Cross Bath in the centre of Bath, before leading a ‘Georgian promenade’ along The Colonnades,  exchanging gossip, scandal, history and tips regarding Wellbeing, including the story of Dr Oliver’s famous Bath Oliver Biscuit. You will step graciously from the Hetling Pump Room (where Edward Austen ‘took the waters’) to The Grand Pump Room, for the paltry sum of £2, all in aid of that very worthy charitable trust The Bath Medical Museum.
