Program Description

Event Details

Scientist and educator Neil Bradbury uses a unique combination of science, true crime, and murder mystery to discuss the cultural role of teatime favorites (such as scones and Dundee cake) in murder. Expect scandal, deadly doctors, and Vincent van Gogh. You will never look at an invitation to afternoon tea the same way!
