Important Update: Unfortunately we have had to postpone this event until later in the year.

Anyone who has bought a ticket can either keep hold of it for later in the year, or seek a refund from Ventnor Exchange. Our apologies to all who were looking forward to the discussion.

Join four experienced panelists from the world of The Arts: globally-successful jeweller, comedy, performing arts and music, as we explore:

What is it about The Arts that makes us happy?

A light-hearted, insightful and stimulating look at why we love the things we love, why The Arts have never been more important, and why it all matters.

Why this discussion now?
The Arts are back baby!

Look around you - we’re all straight out the gates and hungry for galleries, gigs and festivals. Life is moving on, the world is waking up, and arts and culture are a part of our daily lives again.

The last 18 months gave us a unique opportunity to realise what’s most important to us - and it turns out we really, really missed The Arts. The Arts make us happy in a way nothing else can.

The Panel

  • Rosie Wolfenden - Co-founder of Tatty Devine. They produce happiness every single day with their jewellery/creations distributed around the world. As she says: “One of the most important things in life is happiness and if you are not happy what’s the point?”
  • Garrett Millerick - Delivering happiness is at the core of Garrett’s craft - fortunate really given he’s a well-regarded comedian. He’ll also be bringing his extensive experience of theatre too.
  • Sharon George - The powerhouse behind Shademakers and the forthcoming Department in Ryde. The happiness they create is obvious in every smiling face at the carnivals they help create across the world.
  • Ric Stanbridge - Not only does the music that Ric writes and performs bring happiness, but through his producing and running a recording studio he elicits happiness from the band to give their best performance, who pass it onto their fans.
  • Hosted by Simon from OnTheWight

A collaboration between OnTheWight and The Book Bus.
