Join the Museum of the Order Of St John in February Half Term for a very exciting collaboration with the Old Operating Theatre!
Make a nice-smelling pomander, believed in the past to ward off “bad air” (miasma), learn about how medicine was made, and handle historic objects with the Old Operating Theatre.
This will be taking place on Tuesday 14th February between 11am-2:30pm as part of our autism-friendly programme, “Seacole Sessions”.
Interested? Book your free spot through our Museum’s Eventbrite[Image description: two herbal pomanders in the shape of pumpkins sit in a basket with dried red roses and rose petals.]

Seacole Sessions are sensory friendly events for families. They are designed to support autistic and neurodiverse families and are suitable for people who would benefit from visiting the museum when it is less crowded and noisy. Spaces for these activities are limited and free tickets must be booked in advance. All those who sign up will be sent a visual story via email.
•Our programme is recommended for 3-10 year olds but siblings and babies are very welcome.
•Children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the activity.
•Activities take place in our Learning Centre (EC1V 4JJ) which is situated over the road from the Museum.
•If you can no longer attend the activity, please let us know so that we can give another family the opportunity to participate.
•If anyone in your group has sensory needs please contact us (email@example.com) and we will ensure that your table is located in a quieter environment, provide you with a visual story or talk through how else we can best assist you on the day.
