The Remarkable Dr McCavity and his Travelling Surgery
November Club's very own Quack Dentist
FREE event for all the family.
Join us on the streets of Morpeth and meet Dr McCavity, November Club’s very own Quack Dentist, as he makes his way through the streets with his remarkable mobile surgery. Accompanied by his glamorous assistant Ginger Vitis, Dr McCavity takes us back to the nineteenth century when quackery of all kinds was commonplace.
Be one of the lucky few to experience his tooth-drawing skills, whilst he regales you with details from his travels across North East England. If you’re fortunate you’ll be given a very special prescription, in rhyme, to mark the 50th birthday of the Northern Poetry Library.
