Festival of Happiness


We all wish we were happier. Right?

Why are we no happier now than we were decades ago? Let’s come together for just one day and celebrate happiness.

Despite consistent economic growth and our exhaustive materialism, research shows society is no happier. Have our priorities been wrong?

Let’s pioneer a new way forward. Let’s get excited, come together as a community and be happy at the Festival of Happiness! Over 20 FREE taster sessions and workshops by local clubs and groups so you can discover what's on offer in Settle, try something new and see how coming together as a community can make us happier. 

Don’t miss the professional entertainment… Travel to Sierra Leone with stories from Usifu Jalloh and Alim Kamara. Discover Danish comedian Sofie Hagan who’ll have you laughing in the aisles. Dance the night away at our ceilidh.

We’ve brought the ARTS and added COMMUNITY now we just need YOU to make this the best recipe for happiness ever!

All events are free and open to all ages unless specified. If you’re booking a paid for event, take advantage of our online discounts, available until the 25th May. Check out the full event line up, click here.
