Brain Food Festival - Head Matters 2018 (BAW)

External Event - 14th Mar 2018

Brain Awareness Week gives organisations all over the world the chance to tell their local communities about our current understanding of the brain.

We hope you can join us from 10.30am on Wednesday 14th March at the Brain Charity, Norton Street, Liverpool, when The Brain Charity will be throwing open our doors to mark the occasion with another of our popular Head Matters tea parties. This year we will be hosting an amazing food festival to teach people all about food and its effects on our brain and nervous system. We'll have cookery demonstrations, bush tucker trials and the Great Brain Bake Off.

Other charities, groups and foodie organisations will also be on hand to answer your questions about food and its effects on particular conditions. Plus, there will be talks on neurology and nutrition throughout the day from a range of experts including Dr Baker and Dr Silver from the Walton Centre. As usual, you will have a chance to ask questions afterwards.
In between talks why not relax & chat about what you've heard over a nice cuppa? You won't want to miss our tea stand which will be offering the chance to try our range of Brain Chari-teas for free. These are unique blends of tea which have been specially created for us by local company Lady Liver Tea with health benefits in mind and which are available each day in our café.

As our way of celebrating our incredible brains, we'll hold a funny hat competition to wind up our day. There will be a prize for the maker of the judges' favourite, so we'd love you to get your thinking caps on and get creative making your hats - remember this year's theme: 'food and the brain'.

If you can't get to our centre in Liverpool on the day, but would still like to get involved. Perhaps you could hold your own tea party with friends where you live. We have a tea party pack with lots of recipes and ideas to help you get started.
