In this one-off free event, Keith Barry will explore the art and science of cold reading alongside some special guests. Keith will be taking an evening out from his Olympia show, The Dark Side, to ask how and why psychics convince us they can read our minds. Combining discussion and demonstration, this event will look at some of the deception and psychology that underpins ILLUSION.
