Trust Me I'm A Barber-Surgeon

Trust Me I'm A Barber-Surgeon

Old Court , Town Hall. 1pm. £5

A fun, educational show for all the family.

Doctors and Apothecaries. They would often travel from town to town offering their services at fairs and other public events – like this festival. So, if you need something attending to, Master Smee, the Barber Surgeon will be pleased to oblige… and it won’t hurt him a bit!
