Lancashire Science Festival

29th June to 1st July 2017


4pm Saturday 1st July

Paracelsus wrote “All things are a poison, for there is nothing without poisonous qualities. It is only the dose which makes a thing poison.” Many compounds we now consider to be poisons were once found on pharmacy shelves. Before the 20th Century, people often go better in spite of their doctor rather than because of him. In this talk Dr Kathryn Harkup examines four former medicines and their effects on the body – with some killer case studies.


1:30pm Saturday 1st July

Are you brave enough to enter this eerie tour through the history of vampires?
