Half Term – Remarkable Remedies



John Wesley was very interested in health and wellbeing. In  1747 he published a book called ‘The Primitive Physick’ full of remedies and ideas. It was a best seller!


This half term (February 21-26), visit the Museum at John Wesley’s New Room in Broadmead and follow a trail around 12 rooms to learn more about the man and his ideas. The museum is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-4pm and family tickets are priced from £10 (which enables free entry for a year).


We are also running two specific Wesley’s Wellbeing Workshops on Feb 23 and 24. These fun workshops run from 10am – 1pm and are an opportunity for all ages to learn about 18th century lotions and potions – and have a go at making some! 

Suitable for children aged 6+, who must be accompanied by an adult.

Allergies etc need to be declared before attendance via education@newroombristol.org.uk

NB If you are already a family ticket holder, there is a small charge of £3 to cover the cost of the materials.
