Do you sometimes get frustrated at Halloween?

All those skeletal decorations and so many inaccuracies!

Would it kill them to put two bones in the forearm?


COVID 19 has stopped our usual Anatomy Night events so 2020 is the year of the…


Anatomy Pumpkins


Join us in trying to achieve a balance.

Produce a pumpkin carving with some degree of anatomical accuracy publish it to Twitter, Instagram or facebook with the hastag #Anatomypumpkins and tag in @Anatomynights

On the 31st of October at midnight the competition will close and our superstar anatomy judges, Prof Alice Roberts and  Prof Dame Sue Black, will each pick their 3 favourites.


Professor Alice Roberts is Professor of public engagement with science at the University of Birmingham UK.  She is a well known face on TV as well as an academic and an author.  Her roots are in medicine and anatomy.

Professor Dame Sue Black is a scottish forensic anthropologist and anatomist.  She is Pro-Vice Chancellor Engagement at Lancaster University UK.  Her roots are in anthropology and anatomy and she has led pioneering work in international forensic identification.


These favourites will be whittled down to one winner who will recieve a wonderfully inaccurate teddy bear felted skull – inspired by the work of Stephanie Metz and produced by @Anatomyfound.
