An Evening With Elizabeth Day

An Evening With Elizabeth Day

This show is no longer running.

All events at The London Palladium exceed the Government’s current Coronavirus and social distancing guidelines.

Our  Audience Guide outlines all the information you will need for your visit.

Your safety is of paramount importance to us and therefore, across the theatre, we have reconfigured our seating to ensure that audience bubbles are seated at least 1m apart. This includes respacing rows in the stalls to guarantee a 1m distance in front and behind and beside each group.

The spacing between our seats is part of a wide suite of health and safety measures, including mandatory face coverings, which enables us to operate confidently and safely.

Join the bestselling author, and creator of the award-winning podcast How To Fail With Elizabeth Day, to celebrate Failosophy: A Handbook For When Things Go Wrong. For one night only, Elizabeth Day will be live on stage and in conversation with Raven Smith, bringing together all the lessons she has learned from her own life, from conversations with her podcast guests, and from meeting readers and listeners who have shared their stories with her. Following the success of her sell-out How To Fail Live tour, this will be her first ever Failosophy event and promises to be a powerful – and deeply empowering – evening.

Failosophy outlines the seven key principles of failure, which build on the words of wisdom Elizabeth has gleaned from her podcast guests, including Malcolm Gladwell, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Lemn Sissay, Nigel Slater, Emeli Sande, Meera Syal, Dame Kelly Holmes, Andrew Scott and many, many more.

Practical, reassuring and inspirational, this is the equivalent of having a chat with a good friend who wants to make you feel better. In short, it’s an evening you do not want to miss.

Due to the social distancing measures put in place to keep our venues and audiences safe, all seats within a designated Seat Group must be sold together. Seat groups are pre-determined clusters of seats with a designated number of tickets. If you select a single seat within a Seat Group, all seats will automatically be added to your basket.

Full information about safety measures and requirements are available below and will also be sent to ticket holders ahead of the event.
