Berwins Solicitors has become title sponsor of Harrogate International Festivals’ Salon North series.

Described as “a night out with a difference”, Salon North brings together three expert speakers who take to the stage to create a night of stimulating ideas from art, science and psychology, designed to change life for the better.

Carolynn Peace, partner at Berwins, said: “We felt that Salon North was a natural choice for us. We pride ourselves on being no ordinary lawyers and were drawn to the innovation, debate and big ideas the series showcases. It’s important to support the community we live and work in, and to help safeguard what makes Harrogate one of the best places to live in the UK.”

Salon North is the brainchild of award-winning screenwriter, author and cultural curator Helen Bagnall.

She said: “I’m from Harrogate originally and approached the Festivals because I very much wanted to bring what we were creating in London, to Yorkshire, and I’m glad I did, because it’s exactly the right place for it.”

The next events in the Salon North autumn series, Crime, Punishment and Retribution, take place at Harrogate’s Crown Hotel on October 29 and November 26.
