Feast your senses on the most complex thing in the universe: the human brain. From March 13-15 Guerilla Science will host a unique Brain Banquet in a long-forgotten World War 2 bunker transformed into an incarnation of the brain. With food design by the inimitable Blanch & Shock, guests will dine on a five-course banquet created to tickle your taste buds and feed the mind.

The bunker will also host a number of different installations within its cavernous chambers: a Memory Clinic, where guests can share their memories, a giant brain that explores the possibilities of creativity through unorthodox brain stimulation, a Sonic Tour of the Brain that reveals what the brain sounds like. Preserved animal brains and heads on loan from the Royal Veterinary College will illustrate the evolution of the brain. Finally a roaming magician will serve up visual illusions as mental aperitifs.

Journey inside your head. Join us and other daring diners to feast on the brain.
