Salon London's fourth Also Festival runs from 30th June - 2nd July
If you can't make May's event at The Hospital Club, the Also Festival might be for you. Listed in the top UK Festivals by the Sunday Times AND the Guardian, picked by The Independent as the 'place to revel in nature and discuss big ideas', ‘Salon London’s Rural Retreat' brings to life the biggest and boldest ideas from art, science, psychology and philosophy with immersive talks and experiences. Across the programme ALSO seeks to find out more, from the personal to the universe itself.
Partnered with the University of Warwick for 2017, speakers include BBC and ITV historian and presenter, Dr Michael Scott; psychologist Philippa Perry; renegade economist, Kate Raworth; acclaimed philosopher Roman Krznaric and the award-winning author, Helen Oyeyemi.
2017's theme is Truth or Dare as festival-goers of all ages are invited to get involved, with everything from wine tasting to cabaret, immersive theatrical and visual banquets, extreme song lyric bingo, mini beast safari, rave yoga and wild swimming.
The fourth Also Festival takes place from 30th June - 2nd July in the stunning lake-side setting of Park Farm, Warwickshire, within 50 acres of beautiful 'Capability' Brown landscaped grounds, all open for festival-goers to explore, swim and relax in.
