“Unwind & Evolve” with three inspirational speakers at March’s Berwins Salon North

Two scientists and an award-winning broadcaster are to add their names to the distinguished and growing list of Berwins Salon North speakers.

Claudia Hammond, Lewis Dartnell and Adam Rutherford are appearing at the second evening of the 2020 season – being held on Thursday, March 26, at Harrogate’s Crown Hotel.

And those attending March’s Unwind & Evolve event are in for another treat, as it is being hosted by Helen Bagnall – best-known as an award-winning writer, curator, and director of the Salon London series, who launched Berwins Salon North with Harrogate International Festivals.

The thought-provoking sessions consist of a cabaret-style night of the most stimulating ideas in art, science and psychology, with the opportunity to learn a little bit more about yourself and the world around you.

Taking to the Berwins Salon North stage first is Claudia Hammond, who will explain why rest matters and why we should start taking rest seriously.

Drawing on ground-breaking research into rest, Ms Hammond will also examine the science behind the results to establish what really works whilst offering a roadmap for a new, more restful and balanced life.

Lewis Dartnell, professor of Science Communication at the University of Westminster will tell the ultimate origin story, and how our geography determined our destiny from the very beginning.

From the first crops to the founding of modern nations, our Earth has an awesome impact on the shape of human civilisations.

And finally, with scientist and broadcaster Adam Rutherford, sit back, listen and let him give you the tools against the misuse of science to justify bigotry.

The author of the “How to Argue With A Racist”, Adam will discusses how, in a period of fake news and divided politics, the appeal for science to strengthen racist ideology is on the rise, despite it holding no scientific credibility.
