Event description

Description

ExpeRience the science behind one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of hands-on science exploring dreams, senses and even love potions. Expand your mind at a talk from Dr Caroline Horton to learn about what happens to your memory as you dream. Enjoy food and drink and wander, as if in a dream, through our beautiful and historic building.

'I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream,
past the wit of man to say what dream it was.'
-Bottom, A Midsummer Night's Dream
