Harrogate International Festivals is delighted that Berwins Solicitors has announced its continued title sponsorship of the ever popular Salon North for another season.

Berwins Solicitors continues successful partnership with Harrogate International Festivals

The unique series of entertaining and thought-provoking speaker-events will make its eagerly anticipated return later this month, with the next of this season’s six not-to-be-missed TED-style talks being held on Thursday 11 April at The Crown Hotel, Harrogate.

At each Salon, dubbed the go-to ‘night out’ for the post-clubbing generation, three guest speakers and experts in their field explore the most stimulating ideas in art, science and psychology.

Previous guests taking to the Berwins Salon North stage include former Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger; classicist and comedian Natalie Haynes, zoologist and science writer Matthew Cobb; the world’s first forensic jeweller Marie Maclennan, and comedian and podcaster Robin Ince. Subjects have ranged from Mongolian throat singing to how to spot the psychopath in your life, and why Harrogate is so active on the dark web.

Sharon Canavar, Chief Executive of Harrogate International Festivals which curates and produces the Salon series, said: “We are thrilled that Berwins Solicitors is continuing its sponsorship of these events and I’ve no doubt the loyal and growing Salon North fan base will be too.

“Without the backing of Berwins Solicitors we simply wouldn’t be able to stage these wonderfully engaging, enlightening and fun talks, which have been listed in ‘The Top 100 Things to do in the World’ by GQ magazine.

“We love producing these evenings that help us highlight the cultural prestige of Harrogate. Berwins Salon North has attracted some incredible speakers during its time and we have exciting plans for this year’s programme – watch this space!”

Associate Director of Berwins Solicitors, Martin Whincup, said: “We are delighted to have our name associated with Salon North for another season.

“Berwins Salon North, which has been a permanent and much-loved fixture on Harrogate’s cultural calendar for many years now, encourages reflection, deep thinking and self-improvement – habits that very much chime with our own – and we are proud to support these truly unique evenings.

“Each year, the Harrogate International Festivals team conjures up a diverse array of brilliant speakers, and I can’t wait to see who they will be bringing to Harrogate in 2024.”
