The conference dinner will begin with a welcome reception and an opportunity to experience the Question of Perception exhibition on the first floor (details below).

The Ceilidh will begin after the dinner service, when attendees of the AiTs/First 5 reception will join the dinner guests.

Question of Perception 

An interactive celebration of popular illusions and parlour tricks exploring the science of how and why our brains are so easily fooled. In a Question of Perception, your whole universe will be tilted in our Wacky Salon. You can grow and shrink in the Ames room and even look into infinity. There are visual illusions, physical challenges and mind-bending puzzles to engage your brain. Every exhibit will make you rethink how you experience the world.

All attendees will come together in the Atrium for the evening entertainment provided by Stravaig Ceilidhs. The space will be set up with a cash bar, dance floor and stage.

This event is fully booked.

*The price of the ticket includes one welcome drink and a three-course meal, half a bottle of wine and the Ceilidh – a cash bar will be available throughout the evening
