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.Berwins Solicitors and Harrogate International Festivals 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 July’s Berwins Salon North we explore The Power of Influence. Hear from science author, journalist and broadcaster Michael Brooks. With a PhD in quantum physics, Michael is used to answering the ‘The Big Questions’. Here in Harrogate Michael will talk about his latest book – The Art of More – exploring how mathematics has influenced all aspects of society, past and present, from ancient Egyptian priests through to Apollo astronauts. Award-winning science writer, David Robson, specialises in the extremes of the human brain, body and behaviour. Drawing on ideas from his book, The Expectation Effect, David will take us on a tour of the cutting-edge research happening right now that suggests our expectations shape our personal experiences.Our trio of speakers will be expertly bound together by our guest host, the fabulous Gaynor Barnes.
