Berwins Salon North promises scintillating insights into life’s big questions.

On 13 September 2018, three of the UK’s leading thinkers from the worlds of neuroscience, journalism and the arts, will present TED-style talks on the theme, ‘Illuminate’.

Darren Henley OBE, chief executive of Arts Council England, passionately believes creativity matters. He’ll explore the essential role of creativity in human enterprise.

Award-winning journalist Caspar Henderson brings awe to life with A New Map of Wonders. Through natural history, philosophy, art, religion, neuroscience and nanotechnology, learn how to find the fascinating in the everyday.

Finally, grapple with one of the hardest questions of our time – what does it mean to be conscious? Celebrated neurologist and neuropsychologist Dr Hannah Critchlow switches on the ultimate light on grey matter.

Martin Whincup, Marketing Manager at Berwins, said:

We’re incredibly proud to support Salon North and to have witnessed it grow into such a success as one of the town’s most talked about nights out. It engages with what it means to be human, philosophically, emotionally and intellectually.

This revolutionary night-out exploring the most stimulating ideas in art, science and psychology, is delivered by Harrogate International Festivals and designed to change your life for the better. Each speaker has 30 minutes to engage the audience. Berwins Salon North was voted one of the Top 100 Things to do in the World by GQ magazine.

Martin added: “It’s really a remarkable line-up with unique opportunities to hear from some of the leading thinkers of our time. We believe it’s important to support the Arts in the community in which we live and work.”
