Every so often, the Science and Industry Museum hosts a themed, late night event which is for adults only. The next one, coming up in early March, is called Culture Cure, and it deals with health issues in an offbeat way. The Laughter Association’s Robin Graham will explain the science behind havin’ a giggle, and why it’s good for you. Attendees can then get their funny bones tickled in a series of exercises and games. Amy Vreeke will perform an extract from her solo comedy show, ‘The Year My Vagina Tried to Kill Me’. It’s based on her experience of living with endometriosis, and the 10 years it took to diagnose it. You’ll get opportunity to see what goes on beneath your skin with the live UV painting of a model. Visitors can also paint their own hands to show the bones beneath. There will also be a talk about mental health issues, interactive artworks, and a music workshop.
Wed 6 Mar, Science and Industry Museum, Liverpool Road, Manchester, M3 4FP, Tel: 0161 832 2244, 7pm – 10pm, FREE (booking required), www.scienceandindustrymuseum.org.uk
