The Idler Festival is back for a weekend of talks, workshops, comedy, music, philosophy and merriment in the idyllic surroundings of Fenton House and Gardens. 

The Idler is once again taking over Fenton House in Hampstead from Friday 5 July to Sunday 7 July 2024.

There’ll be dancing on the lawn, lounging to DJs in the 400-year-old orchard and harpsichord recitals in the house. Plus beekeeping, ukulele, bibliotherapy, life-enriching talks, workshops and walks.

The Idler Festival is our biggest annual gathering. It’s a chance to hang out with fellow idlers in the surroundings of Fenton House and its bucolic walled gardens. You’ll be entertained and enlightened by our favourite comedians, writers, musicians, philosophers and tutors.

Headliners include Zadie Smith, Rowan Williams, Dominic West, Tim Key, Rosie Holt, DJ Paulette, Nina Stibbe, Arthur Smith, Olivia Laing, and Georgia Mann.

This is what attendees say about the Idler Festival:

A green idyll of thinking and dancing. Heaven…

It really was a little slice of heaven, that weekend. Enjoyed every minute of it.

A MAGNIFICENT weekend of idling joy and delight.

The best festival I’ve been to. Such a brilliant place, so beautifully organised, lovely people and it had a wonderful, relaxed feel to it.

Beautiful gardens, stimulating talks and great conversations with friends

Learning and laughing in a lovely setting.
