Harrogate’s hugely popular Berwins Salon North – voted number 6 in the ‘Top 100 Things to do in the World’ – is back with another set of live TED-style talks designed to excite our curiosity and change our lives for the better.

The next event in the series on Thursday, September 7 will see three expert speakers will take to the stage at the Crown Hotel to share ideas and insights on the topic of How to Think.

From the mind-blowing complexities of the brain and rethinking anxiety, to the wisdom and joy to be found in a bookshop, it’s set to be an inspiring, thought-provoking evening.

Following that journey, Ince will explore his lifelong love of books and bookshops and reveal what goes on inside the head of a bibliomaniac.

After a decade of living with panic attacks and anxiety, writer, poet and musician Tim Clare made a promise to try everything he could to get better.

Clare will share his experiences of what did and didn’t work and explain how he came to rethink anxiety.

The trio of speakers, expertly hosted by Helen Bagnall, will each have 25 minutes to engage their audience with intervals that provide an opportunity for a drink and chat.

Berwins Salon North is sponsored by Berwins Solicitors and produced by Harrogate International Festivals.
