Overview

What's your poison?

Test out some toxicology while getting lightly intoxicated. Our mixologists will fix you one of three deliciously poisonous cocktails while Dr Kathryn Harkup talks you through the poisonous ingredients that go into each one. Find out which liqueur contains cyanide, how many espressos it would take to kill you and which fruit can digest you while you digest it.

This event is part of our Twilight Science evening.
