The Untold Story of Doctor Dick

Will Hazell, from the Falmouth Uncovered walking tour, is sharing the story of Richard ‘Doctor Dick’ Pascoe, a quack medical man who inspired both intense outrage and unwavering loyalty across Cornwall. 


His life is a dark and dramatic tale that guides us into some of the hidden depths of Cornish history, and brings up some thorny questions about how we judge the actions of those long past. 


Will is a storyteller who knows how to bring a narrative to life, and so this is an event not to be missed.
