Festival of Happiness


Saturday 27th May - All Day

We all wish we were happier. Right? Let's pioneer a new way forward, get excited, come together as a community and be happy at the Festival of Happiness! With over 25 (mostly FREE) events in one day, profiling the best of the arts and community groups in Settle and across Craven.

ADULTS: Discover one of comedy's fastest rising stars, Sofie Hagan, as heard/seen on BBC Two, BBC Radio 1 & 4. Don't miss the premier of her new show in Settle! After you've been laughing in the isles, come and dance in them with the Fox Trot Ceilidh Band. There's also a chance to try out free meditation or be prescribed a poemcetomal from our Emergency Poet in a vintage 1970s' ambulance.

FAMILIES: There's plenty to get involved with. Travel to Sierra Leone with two of Africa's best storytellers. Don't miss our Story Walk with our wandering bard. Try out Tai Chi and hear stories of Flying Fairies and Whirling Witches.

What's more, local groups will be profiling their work with a range of free workshops and talks. Loads of opportunities for you to try something new.

A huge thanks to our festival sponsor Giggleswick school for helping us put a giggle into the event.

Take a step towards a happier you.
