Five Ways to Wellbeing Festival

14/04/2018 @ 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Connect. Be Active. Give. Take Notice. Keep Learning

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are a nationally-recognised set of guidelines for anyone looking to improve their mental health and wellbeing. This Festival is an opportunity to find out more about them, and how you can try them in your everyday life and local community.

The day will include performances, stalls from local organisations, activities, talks, walks and workshops.

The Five Ways were researched and developed by the New Economics Foundation and underpin CoolTan Arts’ programme.
