**Event Update: We have been notified by the organiser of the Histories of the Unexpected Tour that the event in Aberdeen has been cancelled due to the impact of COVID-19.**

 

Histories of the Unexpected LIVE is coming to MacRobert Hall on Friday 27th March 2020. History as you’ve never seen it before in this fun for all the family historical extravaganza. 

Who knew that the history of the smile is all about Charles Darwin and the history of electrocution? Or that the history of gloves is all about the beheading of Mary Queen of Scots? And what links together Pompeii, the Titanic, Neolithic cave painting, perfume, scalping, Horatio Nelson, Henry VIII, Hiroshima, the Duke of Wellington, razor-gangs, Shakespeare, mutiny, chimneys and a seventeenth century map of the world?

Expect mind-bending stories, shocking tales and fascinating relics as the Histories of the Unexpected duo rampage around the past, leaving no stone unturned (and no historical window unbroken) in their madcap mission to make sure that you never think about the past in the same way…ever again!

Members of the public can book tickets for the evening event (starts 7pm) online at https://bit.ly/38fhssj. Parking is available in local public car parks at Denburn or Harriet Street. There is no onsite parking available at Robert Gordon's College.
