BROADCASTER and bestselling author Fearne Cotton has announced the first ever Happy Place Festival for this summer.

Taking place at London’s Chiswick House and Gardens and Tatton Park, the festival is a welcome addition to Fearne’s acclaimed Happy Place Podcast and Sunday Times bestselling book Happy.

Happy, released in 2017, was the first in a series of books talking about her own, and some of the not so positive, experiences with happiness.

This is the premise for her podcast series Happy Place, which has become a regular at the top of podcast charts, providing an insightful and upbeat antidote to anyone feeling worn down by the pressures of modern life.

Happy Place Festival further aims to help clear the mind, bring simple joy and help unlock inner happiness, and takes place at Tatton Park on Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8.

Each moment of the festival will be a fully immersive experience giving people the chance to escape anything they are dealing with in real life and come away with some brilliant tools to help them.

Expect workshops including a creative workshops teepee in association with notonthehighstreet, renowned experts to yoga classes, live podcasts and talks from inspiring individuals plus outlets from exciting wellbeing businesses and joyful food to sample.

The Happy Place Festivals are in collaboration with Rituals, a pioneering wellbeing and lifestyle brand that perfectly mirrors the Happy Place ethos of unlocking inner happiness and enjoying life’s little moments.

Inspired by the wisdom and ancient traditions of Asian cultures, Rituals is dedicated to helping you slow down and bring joy to daily rituals through thoughtful and conscious body and wellbeing products.

Fearne started her broadcasting career on ITV’s Disney Club aged 15, and since then has presented a variety of shows including Top of the Pops, Children in Need Rocks, The BBC Music Awards, Fearne and…., 20 series of ITV2’s Celebrity Juice and the upcoming new Netflix and BBC2 interiors show Interior Design Masters, due to air this summer.
