  • Takes place from 8.00pm – 2.00am
  • Prices from £59, book fast as tickets are limited (events sell out very quickly)
  • Explore the Thackray Medical Museum in the dark and who knows what you might find
  • The museum once housed the skeleton of Mary Bateman, the “Yorkshire Witch”, who was executed for fraud and murder in 1809.
