Busy Doing Nothing: The Idler Festival at Fenton House

The Idler Magazine is delighted to launch a new three day festival at Fenton House. Plato's Academy meets the Hay Festival, Fenton will become a dream school with classes on philosophy, husbandry and merriment with the finest tutors.

  • Booking essential

Headlining is Idler contributor Michael Palin and there will be appearances from Sally Phillips, John Lloyd, Carole Cadwalladr, Matthew Green and a host of Idler favourites.

It is just the place to retreat from the hurly-burly and feed your mind and soul.

We are limited to just 400 places so it will be a delightfully intimate occasion.
