    FATAL FLU: SPANISH FLU AND THE THREAT OF PANDEMIC - Torquay Museum

    Rapidly spreading and killing millions, the so called “Spanish Flu” of 1918 was the most deadly pandemic in human history. Fatal Flu: Spanish Flu and the Threat of Pandemic, an exciting new project run by Torquay Museum and funded by Wellcome, will explore the personal stories behind this deadly virus and showcase a new and fascinating exhibition.

    Striking like a lethal lottery there was no way to predict who would succumb to this killer virus. Although no one knows for sure it has been estimated that around 500 million people were infected by the Spanish Flu and up to 100 million people died.

    The pandemic struck in 1918 while the world was still in the grip of the biggest war it had ever known. There was great public grief about the war, and to an extent there still is in the commemorations which are held every year. The flu is thought to have killed more people than both world wars combined but it is not remembered in the same way, possibly partially due to the private nature of grief from an illness.

    Wellcome, which funds the Fatal Flu exhibition, exists to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive. They’re a global charitable foundation, both politically and financially independent. They support scientists and researchers, take on big problems, fuel imaginations and spark debate.

    Children's Eco Sculpture Workshop with Glenn Martin - RHS Garden Rosemoor

    Glenn Martin is an eco-sculptor based on the Isle of Wight and produces mixed media pieces from reclaimed materials ranging from sea glass and metals to wood, plastics and slate. Recycling has been a way of life and ethos for most of his life. In recent years, he has worked with all age groups and held many workshops using recycled materials. In an age where humanity has become more aware of the consequence of our actions, it is important to encourage others to really think about recycling.

    Glenn has exhibited at RHS Garden Rosemoor for the past three years in the Winter Sculpture Exhibition and will be holding a children's eco workshop making fish from plastics – why not come along and build a sea creature to take home.

    This is a free ticketed workshop, please book your place on line as there is limited availability for each session.

    Garden Display: Healing Garden - RHS Garden Rosemoor

    The desire to harness the healing power of plants is centuries old. Throughout the course of history, we have often turned to our own back gardens to provide relief from our ailments. Lemon balm, honeysuckle, marjoram and mint – there are many plants that we grow at home that throughout history have been put to medicinal use. Details of treatments can be found in botanical encyclopaedias, known as ‘herbals’, which promoted the use of plants for culinary purposes but also for health and wellbeing. Containing a fusion of classical teachings, folklore and practical observation, they make for a compelling read – but how much of their advice has stood the test of time? 

    The early printed herbals of the 16th to 18th centuries feature many familiar plants that still grow in and around our gardens today. Separating medicinal uses from medical myths, this small display at RHS Garden Rosemoor will look at how our understanding of these plants has changed and investigate their use for healing today.

    Garden Display: Healing Garden - RHS Garden Rosemoor

    The desire to harness the healing power of plants is centuries old. Throughout the course of history, we have often turned to our own back gardens to provide relief from our ailments. Lemon balm, honeysuckle, marjoram and mint – there are many plants that we grow at home that throughout history have been put to medicinal use. Details of treatments can be found in botanical encyclopaedias, known as ‘herbals’, which promoted the use of plants for culinary purposes but also for health and wellbeing. Containing a fusion of classical teachings, folklore and practical observation, they make for a compelling read – but how much of their advice has stood the test of time? 

    The early printed herbals of the 16th to 18th centuries feature many familiar plants that still grow in and around our gardens today. Separating medicinal uses from medical myths, this small display at RHS Garden Rosemoor will look at how our understanding of these plants has changed and investigate their use for healing today.
