Everyone’s feeling the strain these days and if you are feeling frazzled and stressed out by your busy life, it might well be worth taking some time away from the Saturday chores to come along to our Well-being Festival to see what you can do to make your life easier.

We’ll have a range of activities for you to try from mindfulness to martial arts, drawing classes to downward dog - all guaranteed to help you reduce your stress levels.

We’ll also have stalls from lots of different partner organizations to give you the right tools to live better, whether it’s finding out about the power of exercise or learning to make a quick healthy snack to stop you reaching for the biscuits mid-afternoon!

This festival is part of the programme accompanying the exhibition David Nash: Sculpture through the Seasons.

During the day there will be a number of talks and activities that you can try. These sessions are free however there is a refundable deposit of £5 for each session.
