This Funzing Experience:

Secret Boat Talks are a new series of intellectual talks at London's famous floating book boat, Word on the Water.

On this cozy 100-year-old Dutch barge on Regent's Canal, you will sit next to a wood-burning stove with other curious Londoners; to learn about a fascinating subject and challenge your perspectives.


Note that your ticket includes a £5 book voucher - so you can browse the book boat's collection of classics, cult, contemporary fiction, children's books, art and photography, plus some quirky stuff that you would never think to look for.

The 5 Side Effects of Kindness

Learn how being kind affects the brain and helps make us happier and also how it can be an antidote to depression. Just as stress produces stress hormones that can be harmful to health, so kindness also produces substances in the body, but they act on the heart, blood vessels, immune system, and even on several underlying processes of ageing, including how wrinkles form on the skin.

At this talk, you’ll learn all about the 5 side effects of kindness and how kindness can improve your health, your relationships, and even your world.

Venue: Word on the Water, King's Cross

Doors: 6:30pm / Talk starts: 7.00pm


*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
