The Laughter Club International (UK)

The Laughter Club International in St. Albans was launched on 13th June 2004 and has run since then typically on the second Sunday every month (with only few exceptions – please check Dates).
In May we celebrate World Laughter Day on first Sunday in St. Albans as well as around the world – details are also available on the World Laughter Day UK website.
August is holiday month in St. Albans but we laugh in The Rose Garden Laughter Club in Bushey, and you can still dial into The Telephone Laughter Club.
From May to August 2016 we laugh in the Bushey Rose Garden on the 3rd Monday of the month.
All venues are listed below.
The Rose Garden Laughter Club launched in May 2011 in the Bushey Rose Garden just off Bushey High Street. The Rose Garden Laughter Club is a summer laughterclub and laughs from May to August. Please see below.

Laughter Clubs are highly beneficial for everyone irrespective of physical condition or background – laughing adds the extra spice to our lives. At UnitedMind we use our best endeavours to ensure your health and safety.  However, we also request that each participant be responsible for their own well-being.
The Laughter Club is based on the principles first introduces by Dr. Madan Kataria in 1995. Please visit Dr. Kataria’s School of Laughter Yoga to read more about the Worldwide Laughter Movement.  See Links for further information.
Following on from training with UnitedMind many people go on to start their own Laughter Clubs and UnitedMind constantly map new and regular Laughter Clubs around the UK. Please locate a club in your area on the Google Laughter Club Map, or get in touch if you cannot locate a club near your location.
