I think this might be up there with one of the oddest things I’ve ever written. Nope, it definitely is and it’s taken the top spot. This event allows you to explore infections of organs and tissues of the human body after a lovely 2-course dinner.

The ‘infotainment’ event will almost definitely be like no other you’ve been to before. Aimed at professionals, undergrads and even the public. If work in the industry, have an interest in the human body and how it works, or maybe you have a macabre apocalyptic interest this night is for you.

Buckle up, we’re diving balls deep into some seriously organised fun…

Climate change released a destroying infection, trapped for 1000’s of years within Antarctica glaciers rapidly released into the Northern Hemisphere in the meltwater. The global pandemic has obliterated an estimated 95% of human civilisation.

You little lucky one are protected in the shelter of the UK Home Office Contagion Protection Facility, (CPF for short). The facility siren is about to signal that normal human activity can resume imminently after a mere 9 years under quarantine. 

One carrier of the disease has been captured, and your team are the lucky/unlucky/hella unfortunate ones left to investigate.

After your last, let’s just say perfectly well-timed two-course meal, the alarm sounds 13 times and you enter into the clinical trials. 

​So, suit up, step into the decontamination tent and work with real specimens to learn all about infectious diseases with real-life experimental methods. Will you survive?

The ground-breaking experience delves into an era without antibiotics for a sensational evening of dinner, dissection and infection.
