Red Nose Day: The Truth about Noses!
There’s no charge for this event, any donations for Red Nose Day are welcome.
Friday 15 March, 1-3pm
Free, no need to book
This fun and light-hearted event includes short illustrated pieces on the nose in art, literature, history, and medicine, as well as a panel show loosely based on Radio 4’s ‘The Unbelievable Truth’. In ‘The Un-noseable Truth’, the audience and panel members will be able to test their knowledge of strange nose facts by spotting the truths in a lecture full of lies.
