A Festival Called Wonder has been cancelled. Organisers made a statement saying, "It is with great sadness and regret that we announce A Festival Called Wonder 2015 has been cancelled.
It’s been a really tough decision to make, and one which we haven’t taken lightly, but we feel it’s the right decision. The festival was being organised by a team of four volunteers working around full time jobs, and it’s been difficult to give the project the time it deserves..
A really key part of the decision is that two of the organisers are expecting their first children quite soon. This is obviously excellent news in every way, but it’s made the financial risk involved in the festival a little too much. The festival was intended in part as a fundraiser for Sunday Assembly and had ticket sales been rocketing along, it would have been possible to continue but we felt the risk of making a loss was too high to continue..
We can’t thank everyone involved enough for their support and hard work. We still really believe in the festival and will have another crack next year but it just didn’t work out this time."
A Festival Called Wonder is going to be a totally new kind of festival, built around a model of positive psychology which will offer learning, inspiration, play, celebration and wonder. Presented by Sunday Assembly and driven by their ethos to Live Better, Help Often and Wonder more.
It’s a 3 day long adventure, happening from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th September, set in a natural parkland in the south of England, and broken into five core areas of Positive emotion, Engagement, Achievement, Meaning and Relationships.
The full location and further details about the venue will be made available to ticket holders. It’s a beautiful private estate, with mature trees, rolling grassy hills and beautiful lakes. About 45 minutes south of London by train, about 80 minutes by car or about 4 hours by bicycle.
Lloyd Yates, London Afrobeat Collective, Action For Happiness, Fire Hazard, Jules Evans, and Laughter and Happiness.
The first 300 tickets are on offer priced at £115.
More information will be here when available.
