How To Fail fans – this is the moment you have been waiting for. Your favourite podcaster, journalist and bestselling author, Elizabeth Day, is heading to Shoreditch Town Hall for four VERY special live recordings of her hit podcast!

Joined by a special guest at each event, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be in the room with Elizabeth as she records her popular podcast. Based on the simple premise that understanding why we fail ultimately makes us stronger, How to Fail reveals that failure is not what defines us; rather it is how we respond to it that shapes us as individuals.

Don’t miss the opportunity to spend an evening with Elizabeth for a brilliantly funny, painfully honest, and insightful celebration of the things that haven’t gone quite right. Plus, there’s the opportunity to ask Elizabeth and her special guests your own questions: is ‘success’ a myth? How can we turn crisis into clarity? And does it really matter if you’re rubbish at tennis?

This is a series of uplifting and reassuring events about learning from our mistakes and not being afraid. Because learning how to fail is actually learning how to succeed better. And everyone needs a bit of that.

Elizabeth will be joined on stage by some very special guests: Mo Gawdat on 5 Oct, Caitlin Moran on 6 Oct, Sophie Ellis-Bextor on 7 Oct, and Craig David on 8 Oct.

Doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start. Seats are unreserved and allocated on a first come first served basis.
