    Sink your teeth into Delicious Decay: The Edible Body Farm

    Where: Barts Pathology Museum (3rd Floor Robin Brook Centre), West Smithfield

    Got a sweet tooth? In an educational twist on Halloween, Delicious Decay will be tackling the surprisingly tasty subject of bodily decay. Inspired by the chemical indole found in coffee, chocolate and – yes you guessed it – the decomposing deceased, the event will offer you the chance to excavate edible body parts and smell chemicals used to train ‘cadaver dogs.’ This is set to be a highly popular event so we’d recommend you book your place early!
