Happy Café

 

Happy Café

Every month we will be holding a "Happy Café", an informal group discussion over lunch where we can connect, relax and share inspiration together. The aim is to learn how to support one another, improve our own wellbeing and work towards making the world a kinder place. The sessions will include a mixture of open discussion (non-guided) and structured discussion about Action for Happiness and related themes from the 10 keys to happier living. Bring your own lunch or buy some at the James France Café.

Dates and times:  Thursday 26th March 12-1pm.

Location: James France Exhibition Area
