Have A Weekend Of Wonder With Brain Waves At Barbican

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Barbican.

Find out exactly what goes on inside your head at the Barbican Weekender, which investigates brain waves through a host of free, fun, inspiring events.

For those who like to get hands on, help build a brain (and listen to one), dance in a brain wave flash mob, knit a neuron, experience the Singing Hypnotist, dissect a jelly brain or play Ping Pong Plus and test your sense of perception.

If you prefer to sit back and be entertained, watch the greatest performers of brains-related talks, comedy, music, demonstrations and sketches in London, see Helen Arney put questions to brain scientists in “I’m a Neuroscientist get me out of here – LIVE!”, listen to brain wave driven music and hear Barbican Young Poets and their spoken word creations, riffing on grey matter.

It’s also your last chance to visit Rain Room before it closes on Sunday. Be prepared to queue!

Barbican Weekender: Brain Waves takes place on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 March from 11am-6pm at Barbican Centre and is part of the Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain, a season to light up the mind, in partnership with The Wellcome Trust. All events are free.
