Loneliness can kill. Likely to increase your death risk by 26% (Holt-Lunstad, 2015), loneliness is a societal epidemic. One which can strike anyone, whether surrounded by people, or living in isolation.

What can we do to sustain a life full of love and companionship? Does tech help or hinder? What diverse forms can companionship take? And have COVID restrictions around intimacy made returning to physical touch outside of our household ‘bubble’ an insurmountable task?

Join our panel of intimacy and relationship experts to dissect dating apps, discuss the intimacies of relationships and explore how we might grow old - together.

Featuring Deborah Frances-White, Dr Melrose Stewart, Alix Fox, Emilia Van Hauen, Bolu Babalola
