Brain Injury, Sport and Sacrifice

The Crescent is delighted to welcome to the Cube, NI Science Festival for a series of events as part of their 2023 programme. 

Join award-winning audio documentary maker, podcast creator and author, Hana Walker-Brown as she tackles the topics of power, science and sport, sharing insights from her debut book, A Delicate Game: Brain Injury, Sport and Sacrifice.

Shining the spotlight on the degenerative brain disease, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), the creator of award-winning podcast, A Beautiful Brain, takes a considered look at concussion injuries in sport and the links to brain injury and disease.

Telling the stories of sports professionals and their families, alongside those of the scientists and researchers involved in this area, A Delicate Game is a powerful work of investigative journalism which explores the darker side of the sporting world - the passion, the truth and the violence.
