If Derren Brown has taught us anything it’s to run away whenever you see him in the street. The second thing he’s probably taught us is that even the most sceptical person can find hypnotism entertaining. And if it wasn’t entertaining enough, imagine a singing hypnotist! Christopher Green – a.k.a Ida Barr – will be bringing his mesmerising show back to the British Library this Friday. The part performance and part presentation will cover his discoveries on stage hypnotism, a healthy cycle of songs and some real life hypnosis with volunteers from the audience. This event is so hot it’s making us sleepy, very sleepy… Carly-Ann Clements
