Thursday 31st January 2019 - EVENING EVENT - 5.30pm - 8.30pm Do Your Looks Betray You?

Ticket holders will have a chance to explore the Anatomical Museum from 5:30pm, with talks starting in the historic Anatomy Lecture Theatre at 6:30pm.

Join us to discover what a person’s appearance might tell you about their personality. Can a geneticist, an art historian, a forensic scientist and a sociologist throw any light on the subject?

Each of our guest speakers will talk for ten minutes before the debate is opened up to the audience, offering you the chance to air your views. The evening will conclude with refreshments and a chance for further discussion.

 You can book this talk through Eventbright at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/do-your-looks-betray-you-tickets-53435705634?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
