Is looking really seeing? Can free thinking be manipulated? And can memories be distorted? During this interactive session of tricks, mind games and sensory deception you will learn how a combination of psychology, behavioural economics and magic can create real life Jedi masters or wizards. You’ll also be given insight into current multi-disciplinary research in the area of deception and choice engineering.

Dr Matt Pritchard is a science magician and Curator of Wonder. Previously Matt conducted atomic physics research at Durham University. He subsequently went on to work within the Education department at Thinktank Science Museum, Birmingham before setting up his own company 8 years ago. In addition to this experience, he has spent the last 18 years working as a professional magician and is an Associate of the Inner Magic Circle - one of only 300 people in the world to hold this distinction. He is a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association. In 2015 he was a finalist in the national Speaker Factor competition.

We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Forest Arts, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets: Pay what you decide.
