From his extravagant beard, to his purple-painted pony and the mummified body of his dearly beloved wife that he kept in his living room, nothing was normal about eighteenth century dentist Martin van Butchell. Join Simon Chaplin, Director of Wellcome Collection, for an exploration of  the life and times of one of Georgian London’s most eccentric medical men. Ticket price includes a glass of wine and mince pie, followed by the lecture. Picture courtesy of the Wellcome Collection
