Poisoner’s Dinner with Dr Kathryn Harkup

Presented by Windermere Science Festival

Friday 10 May at 7:30 pm

Enjoy an Agatha Christie-inspired three-course meal and learn about the chemicals Christie used to kill off her characters.  Christie used poison more than any other crime writer as a murder weapon. Discover the chemical and deliciously devilish characteristics of the poisons she used, and find out which ingredients in the dishes you’re eating have the potential to kill.

Dr Kathryn Harkup, best-selling author of A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie, will shine a light on the science used by the Queen of Crime and offer life-saving tips for avoiding deadly food.

The evening includes a three-course meal from a set menu (vegetarian option available) with talks between courses.    Please advise us in advance of any special dietary requirements.

This event takes place in the Laundrama on Rayrigg Road – just across from the Theatre.

A £1.50 booking fee applies to the transaction.  No ticket refunds or exchanges.
