Pandora Sykes - How Do We know We're Doing It Right?

 PANDORA SYKES 1080x1080 BLANK

CANCELLED

 

Modern life is full of choices. We’re told that happiness lies within and we can be whoever we want to be. But with endless possibility comes a feeling of restlessness. What does the right life even look like? And why do so many women feel like they’re getting it wrong?

From journalist and The High Low podcaster Pandora Sykes, comes How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right? a wide-ranging, thoughtful and witty book that navigates the contemporary chaos.

Join Pandora live on stage with a special guest as they explore the anxieties and myths that consume our everyday lives and the tools that we use to muddle through. From that Zara dress to millennial burnout, the explosion of wellness to the rise of cancel culture, Pandora will interrogate the stories we’ve been sold, and the ones we tell ourselves. 

Don’t miss out on an evening that will spark a thousand conversations, whilst encouraging you to find your own path to contentment.

Fresh off the back of releasing their top 10 3rd album ‘No One Else Can Wear Your Crown’, Oh Wonder have announced a brand-new run of UK dates for November 2020. 

The recent release of ‘No One Else Can Wear Your Crown’ has kick-started an epic 2020 for Oh Wonder.
