Curious about magic and want to peep behind the curtain a little? The relationship between magic and psychology is at the heart of Smoke and Mirrors at The Wellcome Collection. The free exhibition will look at how bias and suggestion affect our senses and decision-making, and what makes us believe in magic and the supernatural.

Spirit photography, magic props and psychology experiments will demonstrate how magic works in the mind. The exhibition features artefacts from Derren Brown, Paul Daniels & Debbie McGee and Harry Houdini.
