Celebrate big ideas for living better

Join us at the beautiful Chiswick House & Gardens for a weekend of conversations and debates from brilliant minds. We’ll be diving into all things wellbeing! You can expect practical tools, workshops and a Marketplace - all offering you a fresh perspective on how to live a happier, healthier and more inspired life.

We’ll bring together world-class thinkers to ask: how can we live better? How can we eat better, sleep better, feel better…? How can we live more sustainably? And in better communities?

What happened at Life Lessons 2020

Testimonials

bill

I had a wonderful time at Life Lessons – even better than I expected, and I was expecting a lot. All the visitors I spoke to told me they'd had a fantastic day.

Bill Bryson

This festival takes people from all across society with interesting ideas; it’s a wonderful petri dish where people will meet, the ideas will cross-fertilise and produce new, better ideas.

Andrew Hunter Murray

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1131

It’s important that we have a domain like this where people can sit and try to create a new vision and a new narrative. I hope that people leave with a real sense of that.

Bella Lack

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1132

Life Lessons has changed the way I’m going to do my events. I’ve been to so many talks here and they’re fantastic. I’m so grateful. I’d love to do more work with you

Ruby Wax

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1133

Just wanted to say thank you and express my gratitude for putting together such a lovely weekend. Both Venetia and I thought it was one of the best and well organised events we’ve been to in a long time.

Max La Manna

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1134

Life lessons to me is connection – human connection – where people can listen and work out what’s best for them. I had a brilliant time. It’s the favourite event I’ve done! Thanks so much for the fun!

Rupy Aujla

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1135

Life Lessons is a fantastic event. It’s an interesting festival that so many people of different walks of life can get things out of.

Flo Perry

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1136

Life Lessons is really special. Today has been incredible…so many pearls of wisdom. The opportunity to speak to people who are interested in different things, or talk to a talk on something completely different: that’s what helps you to grow.

Sabrina Cohen-Hatton

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1137

Life Lessons is a great idea. It feels like there’s not enough of it. I would like to think that this is the start of a sea-change I guess. In that it’s something going forward that people realise needs to be part of our everyday thinking.

Romesh Ranganathan

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1138

Life Lessons is doing a very important thing in making information and wisdom accessible. It’s wonderful!

Megan Jayne Crabbe

484d4aead89e341a9adca22234d4d8df85feb7cf792f44f0c4e2c1bc0f8c1d1139

I very much enjoyed my discussion with the Reverend Richard Coles. The Life Lessons format triumphantly demonstrates that a one-on-one discussion doesn’t have to be adversarial to be entertaining. On the contrary, a mutually respectful conversation, even between participants who might be expected to disagree, can be interesting for both them and the audience.
