Friends’ Conversation Evening- on the theme of 'School'

Most of us were, in one way or another, heavily marked by school. We are also liable to have been disappointed by what we experienced there. This month, we ask ourselves questions around what the point of education is, what we would most have wanted to know when we were younger - and what a school should ideally be.

In this Friends event, we'll have a chance to ask what a specifically emotional education might be like - and how we might learn to be slightly wiser people going forward. An ideal chance to meet other members of the School of Life.

About Friends’ Events

Membership of our Friends’ scheme gives you access to a year-long series of monthly conversation evenings, each one anchored around a big idea we’ll discuss over drinks and food. Once a month, we come together in a central London venue with other members of the diverse and bright community of the School of Life. At every 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.

Each month we’ll explore a different theme, starting with School and moving on to Secrets, What’s the Point of It All? Family, Resolutions, Love, Hope, Work, Confessions, Travel, The Body, and Utopia.
