Art and neuroscience put their heads together this March for an array of creative events that are sure to blow your mind. Take your family and your friends along for two brainy days of dance, theatre, music and art for all ages.

The Barbican’s season Wonder: Art & Science on the Brain puts the growing relationship between the arts and neuroscience under the microscope. Among the headline attractions in this collaboration with the Wellcome Trust are an audio-visual lecture on the theme of consciousness from the renowned Oxford professor of public understanding of science Marcus du Sautoy, a free weekend of art and science events and a talk from the comedian Ruby Wax about her struggle with depression.

A season to light up the mind, in partnership with the Wellcome Trust.
