Pub Philosophy: Identity

Baby, I was born this way, sang Lady Gaga...

...but what does it mean to have an identity and what does it tell us about the human condition? Philosophy has long been concerned with how our identity is constructed and manifests itself as well as how it affects our life choices - so sign up and find out what yours says about you!

Tell Me More

Join your laughably under-qualified host as we ask such fundamental questions as…

Is identity inherited or created?

What does it mean to be authentic?

Do your possessions express who you are?

The Society of Strange Summer Madness

Following their sell-out appearance on Halloween 2016, The Society Of Strange is back for one night of midsummer madness.

Edgy, eerie and entirely improvised, The Society will spin tales of the macabre and uncanny out of audience suggestions. If you thought improv was only comedy, think again and prepare to be spooked.

Sometimes funny, sometimes downright disturbing, this evening of portmanteau horror and oddity is inspired by the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft, Neil Gaiman, Mary Shelley, MR James, Stephen King, Tales of The Unexpected, Black Mirror and The Twilight Zone.

Exhibition - Smoke and Mirrors: The Psychology of Magic

What can magic and conjuring tell us about the human mind? Our new exhibition brings together the worlds of psychology and entertainment in search of the truth about deception.

Explore how our biases affect our perception and whether our senses can be hacked. Discover spirit photography, magic props and psychology experiments to see how magic works on – and in – the mind of the spectator.

An accompanying live performance programme explores what magic reveals about the nature of perception and how psychologists have used conjuring to understand the appeal of the ‘supernatural’.
