All Sun Jester's talks and entertainments aim to enlighten, divert and amuse audiences of all sizes and ages.

The Romans were a very clever society but their ideas on medicine and surgery relied largely on magic and folklore. We present real artefacts and authentic replicas which give insight into how the Romans thought the body worked and what they did to treat disease and injury.
