This Funzing Experience:
Funzing.com is The UK's biggest marketplace for unique experiences created by passionate individuals with over 1250 events hosted every month!

In just over two hours you will discover how your heart works.

As a 'trainee surgeon' you will each dissect an ethically sourced animal heart, guided by an NHS doctor. You will learn how the heart fits together and performs its vital task an average of 103,000 times per day.

Overlaid onto this knowledge will be the interesting ways in which the heart goes haywire and some of the extraordinary stories of how we came to reveal its secrets.

You will leave brimming with knowledge on what makes your ticker run, what's happening when it slows to a walk and how on earth we figured all this out!

The event takes place at a private address.

Warning: you will be handling animal meat (not pig). Latex-free gloves and aprons will be provided. All dissection tools are also provided on the day.
