Around 10% of the Northern Irish population are redheads, but how much do we know about the science behind this wonderful fiery feature? In this illuminating seminar, scientist and proud redhead Dr Declan McKenna discusses the ginger gene, explaining how it affects hair colour and why it is so common in this part of the world. Along the way he will explore the cultural significance of red hair throughout human history, discuss gingerism and explain why red hair is the new object of desire. This event will be run in conjunction with the Belfast Science Cafe. Gingernuts and carrot-tops are especially welcome!
