This year, the Happy Place Festival is going virtual. The FREE Festival will be promoting serenity, calm, and the opportunity of escapism during these unsettling times. We had so much fun last year, and so we’ve been working really hard to bring this year’s Festival direct to you! In return, we hope to raise money through optional donations for @nhscharitiestogether @mindcharity, @blklivesmatter, The @PrincesTrust and @coppafeelpeople. Launching next Friday 12th June until 12th July, the all-digital Festival will continue to promote the Happy Place ethos for families to enjoy online.

There’ll be plenty to do, watch and listen to for everyone, from music to meditation, cooking, storytelling, and craft workshops – and family-friendly activities for the whole household.

Fearne hopes that the digital festival will provide a sense of escapism, serenity, and calm that is very much needed after the events of 2020 to date and with restrictions on physical contact.

"It’s clear that community and connection is more vital than ever,” Fearne shared when she announced the virtual event. “I wanted to work out a way of making the festival happen to give people a way of experiencing helpful classes, workshops, and talks for free this summer. There’s even more content than we would have had at the live event and I’m excited for people to enjoy our month’s long schedule."

Virtual areas at the festival include The Talk Lounge, Meditation Mountain, Family Retreat, Wellbeing Garden, Kitchen, Craft Village, and Pledge Wall. Boutique, ethical, and independent vendors will feature too in the online bazaar.

While access to the Happy Place Festival and all content is absolutely free – there will be the opportunity to make a donation, too. All money raised through donations will go to Mind, The Prince’s Trust, CoppaFeel, and NHS Charities Together.

Happiful is delighted to support the Pledge Wall at this phenomenal event, and also series eight of Fearne's Happy Place Podcast.
