Salon LXXIII

Thursday 5th March 2015

EVOLUTION, Revolution, Constitution.

Salon London is interesting cultural content curated for the interested.  We take an idea and we look at it laterally from an arts, a scientific and a psychological point of view.  Salons take up to two hours and appear in beautiful spaces across the capital and beyond.

On March 5th, and the incredible roof space of the brand new Foyles, we present 'Evolution' the first in our series of our 'Evolution, Revolution, Constitution', series.

We ask the question is man (or woman) just another animal?  Luckily we have superstar geneticist and man Prof Steve Jones to give us the definitive answer.

Talking of genes Ruth Padel gives us the poetic position on evolution, and she should know being a multi award winning poet and writer, and incidentally, Charles Darwin’s great, great grand-daughter.

Then Tony Juniper (former head of Friends of the Earth) asks what nature is doing for Britain? Turns out quite a lot actually, he’ll be on hand to explain the birds and the bees – as in exactly they contribute to our economy. 

At the brand new Foyles on Charing Cross Rd 5th March, doors at 18:30, first speaker at 19:00.
