Join us as we say the magic word and pull back the curtain to reveal ILLUSION, our brand new brain-melting, mind-bending exhibition exploring the neuroscience of magic. Exploring sensory deception, ILLUSION investigates how perception underpins everything we see, feel, think and do.

Curated by author of best selling books like Quirkology and 59 Seconds and Britain's only Professor of the Public Understanding of Psychology Richard Wiseman, ILLUSION promises to be a perception-shattering insight into the human mind, combining magic with psychology, optical illusions with scientific reasoning, and confusion with clarity.

The ILLUSION launch party is for Science Gallery Members, Friends and Patrons, and it's your chance to meet the curators, artists, illusionists and scientists who put the exhibition together. Let our magicians read your mind, fool your senses, and watch live as they perform a jaw-dropping trick that defies the laws of physics... or at least appears to!

In an exhibition where the line between reality and fiction is blurred, should you believe your eyes? Can you really trust your senses? Is anything as it seems?
