May’s Members’ Only Event

Food, Medicine and Magic: A 17th-century foraging walk

  • 3rd May 2024
  • 12pm – 1pm


Medieval foraging experts, Ian and Caroline, will transport you back to the early 1600s with an exclusive walk and talk for Bishop’s Palace Members 

The walk and talk will explain how our ancestors used common English wild plants, including which ones they ate, which ones they used for medicine, and which ones they had some funny ideas about!

During the 1600s, there were many changes in the field of medicine, and for a person living in the 17th century, their garden and hedgerow were their medicine cabinet.

Members will get a chance to handle, smell, and even taste some of the plants.

This event is exclusive to Bishop’s Palace Members. A valid Membership is required to attend. Pre-book your space via the link below.
