Meal & Comedy Night @ Komedia, Bath (+ Mototcity)
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
6:30pm - 3am

Join me for a meal, a night of comedy at Komedia, followed by dancing the remaining night away at the Motocity event following-on from the comedy show. PS it will be a tad less busy on the night... as Bath Students on holiday... :-) Those of you who have attended this event before... know how much fun this is....!! :-)

Comedian line-up to be confirmed nearer the date.

There are various options... and tickets can be booked on-line at


1. Join me (and a few others) for the 'Meal-Deal' option at 6.30pm, which is a meal at Komedia (menu to be confirmed) before the comedy show at 8.00pm and then Motorcity at 11.00pm, till the early hours of Sunday morning or until your feet ache. (£31.50). Personally, I think this is the best option...!! :-)

2. Come along for the comedy show at 8.00pm and then Motorcity at 11.00pm, till the early hours of Sunday morning. Prices vary as follows:-

Auditorium £20.00 Balcony £16.50 Balcony Concession £13.00

3. Come along just for the Motorcity event at 11.00pm. This is £6.00 payable on the door on the night, so get in the queue early... so that you get in, but with students away, I don't think entry will be an issue....!!!

If you are joining the few of us for the meal-deal option, tables are served on a first-come, first-served basis, so get there early to join us in the queue to get the best table(s)... but not too close to the comedians please...!! :-o

Exploring What Matters is a secular, science-based course for people who want to learn how to live happily and spread happiness to those around them.
It was created by the Action for Happiness charity to help people tune in to what really matters in life, connect with people around them and find small ways to start taking action.
On the course you will:

Meet with like-minded people to explore what really matters in life and find new ways of looking at things.

Enjoy expert videos, mindfulness exercises and a handbook full of resources to help you break big ideas into manageable chunks.

Take time each week to think of small actions you can take to create happiness for yourself and those around you.

People find it really valuable and often refer to what they learn on the course as life-changing.

Each week is based around a big question:
Week 1: What really matters in life? We'll explore whether a greater focus on happiness and wellbeing might be better for all of us.
Week 2: What actually makes us happy? We'll explore the role of outer circumstances and inner attitudes in our wellbeing.
Week 3: Can we find peace of mind? We'll explore some of the skills and practices that can help us in difficult times.
Week 4: How should we treat others? We'll explore how to treat others and how we can become more compassionate.
Week 5: What makes for great relationships? We'll explore how our relationship to others impacts our own happiness.
Week 6: Can we be happier at work? We'll explore what makes us happy at work and what can we do about it.
Week 7: Can we build happier communities? We'll explore how to create communities that are more caring, connected and happy.
Week 8: How can we create a happier world? We'll explore how to live in a way that contributes to a happier world, not just for ourselves but for others too.

This course is for anyone interested in exploring how to create happiness for themselves or others.
Maybe you’re someone who could do with some new approaches to try out in your own life.
Or maybe you’re passionate about creating happier communities and a happier world.
Either way, by coming together with others locally on this course you can find the inspiration and support you need find the actions that work for you.
Please note: this course is not group therapy, if you are experiencing severe challenges at the moment we recommend seeking alternative professional support.

The course is run by keen volunteers who are stepping forward to help spread happiness in the local area.
Everyone who joins the course makes a donation of their choice to be there.
It costs Action for Happiness about £90 per person to support each course so we ask all participants to give whatever they can to support themselves and others.
You can give as Supporter (£120) or give the Standard (£90) if you are able, otherwise please give whatever donation works for you - even if you can only give £5 right now you’re as welcome as anyone else :)

“Being able to believe that I could be brave enough to change my circumstances/life, in order to be happier/make others happier around me.” ~ Michelle, Farnborough
