My first introduction to The School of Life was via a catering tent in the middle of Henham Park, Beccles. We were gathered to listen to the Sunday Sermon on switching off in the digital age led by Wired UK’s editor-at-large, Ben Hammersley. Our hymn was Ground Control to Major Tom. Mr. Hammersley played guitar. Despite the large amounts of whiskey still percolating through my system it was an enlightening way to spend a Sunday morning.
