Change to the Festival Line-up! 

Dear Festival of Work attendees,

We wanted to let you know first about a change to our line-up. Louis Theroux is unfortunately no longer able to appear due to unforeseen circumstances.  

But don’t worry! We have a line-up of 100+ incredible artists speaking, including Katherine Ryan and Kanya King. And breaking news, the exceptionally talented Fearne Cotton is joining us. Fearne is one of the most recognisable TV and radio hosts in the UK. She’s a bestselling author and founder of the wellbeing brand Happy Place, which also became the premise for her podcast. As someone who has talked openly about her own mental health challenges, Fearne will be sharing her take on the importance of self-care and how to set boundaries in your working life to be fulfilled rather than burnt out.  

This event is set to be an absolute powerhouse of positive work solutions, unquestionable innovation, and transformative strategies, empowering you to navigate the ever-changing landscape of work with confidence and creativity. The full line-up for all six stages at the event is available here.  

You will also be able to enjoy our Festival experiences. From our Hackathon, diving deeper into the world of work through shared learning, to our Wellbeing Village, offering puppy therapy, yoga and breathwork, we’re certain we have something for you. For the full list of experiences across the two days click here.  

We look forward to welcoming you through the doors on Wednesday and Thursday.  

All the best, 

The CIPD Events Team
