Life Lessons Festival 2021 Announces That Dr Ranjan Chatterjee, Professor Brian Cox, and Claudia Winkleman Will Join Life Lessons 2021

Previously, visitors to the festival packed out the Barbican Centre, but this year, sessions will take place outside. The new outdoor set up will see the main bulk of the action taking place on a purpose built stage, flanked by a spacious outdoor seating area, allowing visitors to take in the breathtaking view of the lake and the surrounding landscaped grounds. 

2021 guest speakers include Dr Rangan ChatterjeeProfessor Brian Cox, and Claudia Winkleman and tickets will be available for pre-sale from April 28th, before going on general sale the following day. 

In 2020, the line-up drew household names such as illusionist Derren Brown, comedian and author Romesh Ranganathan and actor and mental health campaigner Ruby Wax who will return to Life Lessons for a second year. 

Whilst the full line up is yet to be released, some of the brilliant minds joining Ruby at Life Lessons 2021 include former Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid and Psychologist Kimberley Wilson who will share their ideas on how we can all learn to live better as we prepare to re-enter life in the fast-lane. On Saturday 17th July, Professor Brian Cox will take to the stage to reflect on the life lessons that scientific study of the universe has taught him about planet Earth.

Rigorous cleaning is scheduled to take place between sessions and hand-sanitizers will be available at visible points around the festival site. The organisers look forward to welcoming visitors to a festival that has been built to withstand the challenges of the pandemic world. 

Life Lessons will be one of the first festivals in London to go ahead as a physical event in 2021.  Festival organisers have already taken all precautionary measures to keep visitors safe, including controlling visitor capacity & introducing timed sessions, which will help reduce traffic around the festival and allow for social distancing.

In addition to the sessions that will take place on the main stage, there will also be a range of off-stage activities taking place over the course of the festival. Lexus will be hosting outdoor mindfulness sessions which will include origami workshops during the day, and 20-minute meditation sessions in the evening with Christoph Spiessens. Visitors will also have the opportunity to address imbalances in their lifestyle at Dr K’s CBD Lifestyle Clinic, where Dr K’s team will be on hand to guide visitors towards changes that could improve overall wellbeing and happiness. 

Tickets for Life Lessons 2021 will be available for exclusive pre-sale from 28th April and will go on general sale on 29th April. To register your interest in pre-sale tickets, head to Here.
