This event is in support of Action for Happiness. We want to make it accessible to as many people as possible, so rather than charging a fixed fee we're instead asking you to make a donation. It would be great if you could donate £20, but if you can spare more, or feel unable to give that much, then please give what you feel is appropriate.

Any funds raised (beyond the costs of the event) will contribute directly to Action for Happiness' work relating to growing the movement and supporting local action groups relating to happiness and well-being. Action for Happiness is part of the Young Foundation, a Registered Charity (274345).

Any questions about the event please contact

We look forward to seeing you there!
