The Summer School

Stanton Guildhouse, Broadway, England 28th, 29th, 30th May 2015

It’s pretty hard to beat the stunning views from our 2013 classroom in Villefranche-sur-Mer, but f you have ever been to the English Cotswold’s you will know that it can be possible.

The Stanton Guildhouse is set in an elevated position in the hamlet of Stanton, close to Broadway, one of the most beautiful villages in Britain. From the grounds of The Guildhouse you can see for ten miles across open countryside, look down towards the hamlet’s honeyed thatched cottages and stroll next door to a truly English country pub. As settings go this one is hard to beat.

This year we have assembled another truly amazing faculty, and with the range of facilities we have at The Guildhouse, there will be an even greater emphasis on doing, connecting and creating.

Details of the programme are being released on the main page, bit by bit, but don’t waste any time, book you place now here

….and a little nostalgia for those who remember 2013….

If only all classrooms were like this! The view from The School of Curiosity.

Villefranche-sur-Mer 23rd, 24th, 25th October 2013

Join The School of Curiosity for an unforgettable three days involving artists; poets; philosophers; musicians; a few bizarre people who are busting the boundaries of their world; and quite probably a celebrity or two.

The aim is to help a hundred or so delegates to significantly enhance their curiosity through events, activities and just by connecting with other people and other ideas – fortune favours the connected. Why? Because there’s a massive body of research that shows that curious people live longer; are happier; enjoy better relationships; find more opportunity; and find small pockets of meaning in their everyday lives. Who doesn’t want that?

The faculty includes: Lord Andrew Mawson; Dr Brian Palmer; Tom Calderbank (Son of a Witch); Malcolm McClean; Dawn Gibbins; Marina Nicholas; Felix Richard; Jeff Hessing and more…
