Where Do You Go To, My Lovely? A super-hyped Salon London

Monday 23rd June 2014 7pm - 9pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

In a mid-year summer slump, want to hit your creative brain with a defibrillator? Wait, government tech advisor and digital pin-up Ben Hammersely has spent the last year working out how to get your brain in optimum health for creative thought. Pens out. Learn from Ben.

Salon London makes you superhuman:

Want to understand the colour of music and the taste of words? World synaesthesia expert Professor Michael Banissy (author of Superhumans) will explain the world of the synaesthetes, those people who experience everything through a union of senses.

Salon London takes you on a trip:

Olivia Laing's book Trip to Echo Spring: Why Writers Drink is a genius psycho-geography style tour around America taking in the worlds of F Scott Fitzgerald, John Cheever and Tennessee Williams. Working with Odette Toilette we will all travel through time and space and get into the interior and exterior landscapes of these great American writers.

Salon London. We curate Culture.
