Ever since Harrogate International Festivals brought London’s most talked about evening to the town, it’s been a sell-out sensation.
Berwins SALON North is a revolutionary movement for the heart and mind. The SALON events consist of a night of the most stimulating ideas in art, science and psychology designed to change your life for the better.

An evening of three speakers, each given 30 minutes to engage the audience with their subject, interspersed with intervals allowing time for a well-crafted gin and tonic.

Expect the remarkable…

Daring Featured ImageProf. Judy Wajcman will daringly discuss the idea – is technology supposed to make our lives easier and if so, is this actually the case? Transhumanism is a subject that divides many; Prof. Steve Fuller will be on hand to explore the big question – can we really afford to live forever?
