Lagom Calling with Sunday Assembly Southampton

Banister Primary & Nursery School

25 th February 2018 11:00

Break out of the Winter Cycle by Living even Better in 2018!

Last year, teacher and standup comedian Tony Kinsella declared Denmark to be the cultural pioneers of contentment in his talk on hygge; but now it's time to throw away the candles and the spicy fruit porridge, because Tony has visited Stockholm, read another book and adopted a new philosophy: Lagom: The Swedish concept of The Good Life.

Lagom Calling explores the very Socialist principles of the Swedish lifestyle, with its focus on justice, community and frugality. Combining Viking team ethics and The Law Of Jante, the Swedish mantra that 'enough is as good as a feast' is a simple and accessible ethos that will change your life for the better and save you a few quid with a few small tweaks to your own routine.

Along with this, there'll be a short talk, singing, poetry, positive news, cake, tea and mindfulness. As always, we'll be going to The Flying Aubergine after for delicious food if you want to join us.

You’ll find us at Banister Primary School, Archers Road, Southampton, SO15 2LS. We aim to start at 11am, and have tea/coffee/cake/conversation by 12:30, leaving by 13:30

If you have children you'd like to bring along, they are certainly welcome, but we'd recommend that you bring some quiet activities along for them.

We have disabled access and an accessible toilet, but no assisted listening. If you'd like large print of the lyrics, let us know.

**** Sunday Assembly is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. Please bring cash and support us if you can to keep it free for those who can't.

To find out more about Sunday Assembly Southampton, or get involved in shaping this community, whether through bringing along cake, offering a short talk, or helping us plan, please email ****
