Memory Workshop

Saturday 8th November 1-3pm, The McCoy Studio at The Rag Factory. £3 per ticket, includes a free drink. Book tickets here.

Have you ever wondered how human memory works? Focusing on how we remember events, this practical workshop explores why people sometimes remember things differently to one another, and how reliable our memories really are. Looking at the role of eyewitness evidence in the criminal justice system we will discuss the implications this body of research has within our society. The workshop will be led by Dr Fiona Gabbert.
