8th Dec 2012
To close 2012, you are all invited to our sparkling little Christmas party. Get this right, on the afternoon of Saturday 8th December, we are running a vocal session one of the UK’s best vocal coaches, Salon’s own Juliet Russell. No stranger to fame and success, singer/performer Juliet has performed and collaborated with Damon Albarn, Paloma Faith, Imogen Heap, Brian Eno (the list goes on) and is currently a vocal coach on The Voice UK. She has been persuaded to help us get our voices in to shape for Chrimbo. Running 3pm – 5pm at the lovely venue in Marylebone, we offer you the perfect respite from shopping/exuding distain for capitalism, and will run our Salon party a bit like this: quick drink, warm up, vocal jam, form a temporary Salon choir to sing a former Christmas No 1 that is in a league of its own, and relax with a drink or a bun.

Curious about Curious Incident? As part of the Inside Out festival, Salon London and the National Theatre have teamed up to present a chance to dig deeper into Marianne Elliot’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on the novel by Mark Haddon and adapted by Simon Stephens. Salons always include three of the country’s most passionate speakers from across the arts, science and psychology and offer a sneak peak in to their worlds.

So, let’s just say we do end up in a dystopian landscape in which we are forced to forage wild land for bits of food, will we have to eat less pesto, the answer fortunately is no. Experienced food forage experts Leo Critchley and Rob Cowen have spent two years spent in the wild finding out exactly how you can supplement our diet in a positive, intelligent way without going beyond our city boundaries.

Now social media makes it impossible to forget, your data shadow sticks to you like a mouse to a glue trap, and your washing machine is bitching about you to its manufacturer, sometimes it feels like there isn’t anything you can to stem this march of progress. But before you search out your loom basher, why not sit back and listen to the consoling tones of Ben Hammersley, inventor of the podcast, government advisor on technology and Editor at Large for Wired Magazine, Ben is on hand to explain exactly what’s happening in the digital world, and to tell you everything you need to know now to prepare for then.

This year your hosts very much wanted to take Salon to a summer festival, you know, one with camping and halloumi burgers. We had our tick list: we wanted a clever one run by doers, one not afraid of dressing up of a Saturday night and one that knew how to shake its tail-feather, baby.
