Three expert speakers deliver TED-style talks designed to change your life for the better. Presenting big ideas, and answering key questions in life, Salon was voted as number six in the ‘Top 100 Things to do in the World’ by GQ magazine.

In today’s world it can seem harder and harder to connect meaningfully to other people. At November’s Berwins Salon North, we’re looking at some of the ways we can find hidden connections with others, from the food we eat to the work we do, the generation we’re a part of to the history we make together.

Linguist and lexicographer Dr Sarah Ogilvie reveals the hidden stories of the people who came together to create the Oxford English Dictionary, featuring three murderers, Karl Marx’s daughter and a vegetarian vicar. The nation’s favourite taster-in-chief Felicity Cloake takes us on a trip of condimental proportions to investigate and celebrate the legendary Great British Breakfast and the food that brings us together. Finally, Professor Bobby Duffy asks whether when we’re born determines our attitudes to money, sex, religion, politics and much else, and whether the differences between generations is as big as we might think.
