In a world dominated by other people’s opinions, Salon gives you the knowledge to form your own.

Three expert speakers deliver TED-style talks designed to change your life for the better. Presenting big ideas, and answering key questions in life, Salon was voted as number six in the ‘Top 100 Things to do in the World’ by GQ magazine.

In a time of polarised debate and online shouting it is Berwins Salon North that gives you the time and space to learn from the experts and make up your own mind. This cabaret style evening is designed to change your life for the better and excite your curiosity.

We present the most stimulating ideas in arts, science and psychology. Each expert speaker has the challenge of engaging their audience within a 25-minute set, interspersed with intervals and time for a well-crafted G&T. Our Salon evenings are Harrogate’s own style of live TED talks, where you’re guaranteed to learn something new about yourself and the world around you.

In September’s Berwins Salon North we ask our audience to Take A Second Look.

Award-winning writer, poet and author Rob Cowen’s recent book – The Heeding – contains thirty-five luminous poems written across four seasons in a year that changed all of our lives, leading readers on a journey that takes its markers and signs from nature and a world filled with fear and pain, but beauty and wonder too. Here in Harrogate Rob will encourage us to look again, to heed: to be attentive to this world we share and this history we’re living through. Professor Bobby Duffy explores whether when we’re born determines our attitudes to money, sex, religion, politics and much else. Generations, informed by unique analysis of hundreds of studies, reveals that many of our preconceptions are just that: tired stereotypes – is it time to look again at what we think we know about generational divides? Finally, drawing on her book Rule, Nostalgia, writer and cultural historian Hannah Rose Wood will take a second look at Britain’s perennial fixation with its own past, by separating history from fantasy and debunking dangerous and pervasive myths about Britain’s past.

As ever, our trio of speakers is expertly bound together and hosted by the fabulous Helen Bagnall.
