Talk: The Anatomy of Loneliness

Audio-described tour Museums, galleries and heritage venues

Join the Wellcome Collection as they reveal and reflect on the results of the Loneliness Experiment with a diverse panel of speakers. BBC Radio 4 will begin recording the discussion from 3 pm, but related activities will be happening from 2 pm
