Time to clear those diaries and book ahead.
Words by Natasha Young
Acclaimed tour’s evening of dinner and dissections
There’s nothing untoward about heading out for a meal and theatre, right? Well, unless you’re talking about theatre of the surgical kind!
The nationally acclaimed Anatomy Lab LIVE will head to Liverpool on 25 January, 2019 as its next tour reaches more towns and cities than ever before, and it’s already shaping up to be an experience like no other.
Attendees at the event, which has previously hit headlines and sold out two tours, will enjoy a two-course meal within an operating theatre dining room before working through a complete dissection of the human body.

Expect tables within the venue at The Village Hotel in Whiston to be covered with blue surgical drapes and accompanied by surgical trollies with clamps scalpels and surgeons’ tools.
Human anatomist Samuel Piri and his team of clinicians will lead the way as a live patient is rushed through the crowd and into a pod before being anaesthetised, and surgery is broadcast onto screens.
Each guest will don real surgical overalls and use real surgeons’ kits to attempt procedures on specimens before claiming an Anatomy Lab Live CPD certificate.
An exclusive merchandise kiosk will also be on hand, offering you the chance to pick up extra mementos from the night such as blood infusion bag coffee cups and organ transplant lunchboxes.
Tickets are now on sale.
