Herbology Lessons, All Hallows’ Eve

For All Hallows’ 2023, St Nicholas Priory hosted Lightbear Lane and the Devon & Exeter Medical Heritage Trust for two exciting Herbology lessons! About 40 children and their adults had the opportunity to learn about historical medical instruments, look through a 200-year-old herbal, experiement with  herbs and make potions. In the setting of the medieval kitchen and wearning cloaks throughout the experience, children and parents had the chance to engage with natural remedies, learn to make herbal drawings, and how to keep a mandrake from screaming (noisy litte thing!).
