A night of big ideas and spellbinding stories, including David Nutt on how psychedelics can change your life, and Caspar Henderson on the sounds of the cosmos.
Join us for a cabaret like no other. We’ve gathered five of the most exciting thinkers to share insight and inspiration in an unforgettable night of entertainment.
Professor David Nutt will cut through the noise around psychedelics and share his research around the power of these powerful drugs to revolutionise not only the treatment of mental health conditions including depression, PTSD, and disordered eating, but our understanding of brain mechanisms and even consciousness itself.
We all go through hard times. Buddhist monk and Sunday Times bestselling author Gelong Thubten will teach us how to cultivate happiness, kindness, and resilience by reframing life’s difficulties as opportunities for transformation.
Changing everything you think you know about evolution, Cat Bohannon will take us through 200 million years to tell the story of the female sex. We’ll discover how wet nurses drove civilisation, the relationship between evolution and sexism, and whether our babies are at war with our bodies.
And Caspar Henderson will introduce us to the world as we’ve never heard it before, bringing his characteristic curiosity, knowledge, and sense of wonder to the heard universe. From the vast sound of sand in the desert to the tuneful warble of a songbird, he will celebrate the ways that sound shapes our world in invisible but profound ways.
Whether you love art, science, people, or our beautiful planet, this is a one-of-a-kind gathering of extraordinary minds that no-one should miss.
