The School of Life Friends - 1 Year Membership

Become a Friend of The School of Life

We’re sometimes not too sure how we get into good friendships. It seems to happen rather mysteriously: we talk of somewhat randomly ‘clicking’ with people. Trying to plan for it sounds like cheating. But in a busy world, the desire to socialise authentically, with interesting, like-minded people, deserves to be addressed directly.

That’s why we created The School of Life Friends scheme. Membership gives you access to a year-long series of regular conversation drinks, each one anchored around a big idea we’ll discuss over drinks and food. Every month, in a central London venue, we come together with other members of the diverse and bright community of the School of Life. At each event, you’ll be offered a conversation menu and systematically (and entertainingly) introduced to everyone else in the room. If you enjoy our work, you will find kindred spirits. The evenings are guaranteed to be stimulating and reassuring - as well as prompts to genuine connection and insight.

The Programme Includes

    • Access to the cycle of regular Friends' conversation drinks in central London venues, plus a free ticket to the first event. 
    • Subsequent Friends' events cost as little as £20 per ticket.
    • 10% discount on all core classesone-day and professional workshops, and Special Events
    • 10% discount across our range of products, online or in store
    • Access to future international Friends Conversation Drinks in any of our branches worldwide
    • Our Friends Newsletter
    • A handsome and distinctive membership pin badge*

    The programme lasts for one year, after which you will be asked if you'd like to renew your subscription.
