Berwins Salon North : Memory
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.

The format consists of 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!

Memory is the first Salon in our Memory, Music & Magic Berwins Salon North Series.

Ed Cooke is a Grandmaster of Memory, and the co-founder of Memrise, an incredible digital platform designed as a free resource to help people optimise memory potential. He’s bringing a range of techniques and ideas to Berwins Salon North to increase the size, scope and range of our capacity to remember. In the meantime, please don’t forget to book your tickets.

We will explore exactly how human memory works with Nicky Clayton, Professor of Comparative Cognition at the University of Cambridge and University of Cambridge artist-in-residence Clive Wilkins. In this session they will demonstrate the way the brain processes memory and its function, leaving us with an understanding of how we access it, what its purpose is, and why it only runs in one direction.

Author, performer (and indeed magician) Nathan Penlington found a compelling story hidden in the margins of a job lot of Choose Your Own Adventure books bought on Ebay. As he delved in the hidden story of the previous owner, his findings revealed a deeper story, one of unreliable memories, resolving recollections with the truth and the reasons why we remember.
