About

Happy Hour is a unique workshop offer for adults of all ages, which addresses the common problem of a lack of enjoyment of today’s busy urban life.

Having noticed that more and more of her friends and colleagues regularly talked about feeling ‘burned out’, ‘just too busy’ or ‘stuck in a rut’, experienced creative facilitator and trainer Natasha Bergg decided to design a workshop offer that would bring small groups of adults together in a creative space to make meaningful connections, rediscover playfulness and be in the moment.

Workshops are currently running as one-off evening sessions. To find out more about dates and costs, click here.

In a Happy Hour workshop, expect to experience the following:

  • the opportunity to forge new connections and to feel a sense of achievement, as part of a supportive collective
  • facilitated creative work on how to be more present and in the moment
  • the chance to be playful, joyful and have fun in a ‘no right, no wrong’ environment
  • a challenge to stretch yourself and take a step out of your regular comfort zone
  • the enjoyment of a feeling of space – free from responsibilities and electronic devices
