OK, time to escape the January rain, get your head out of those grey clouds and let your mind wander at Selfridges’ Festival of Imagination. There are plenty of great looking talks, workshops, fitness classes, oh and wine tastings (because who doesn’t feel creative after a few bottles of vino?). We’ve chosen our favourite five to get you started.
‘Dance party’ with Dr Peter Lovatt
It’s a party like no other; expect dancing of the body and the mind. Dr Peter Lovatt who runs the Dance Psychology Lab uses dance to get people to limber up and change the way they think.
Growing the Future: Crystal City
Remember those ‘Grow your own crystal’ kits you got as a kid? Magnus Larson and Alex Kaiser are two architects who turned it into a career (I know, jealous!). They made it their challenge to grow the biggest crystal structures possible, and now you can join in. Get hands on and help build the ever growing crystal city at Selfridges.
