The Great British Summer of Wellness Festivals stretches out ahead of us, so here’s a run down of our pick of the bunch, as well as tips from our ambassadors about their outfit plans and must-sees. There are new Wellness Festivals popping up all over the country, featuring leading practitioners, speakers and influencers who are there to impart some of their expertise for wellbeing.
We wanted to look all over the country, and taking inspiration from our ambassadors and their festival plans, here’s a selection of events that we are drawn to.
Happy Place Festival - 6th and 7th August CHISWICK HOUSE
If you’ve listened to Radio 1, watched Top of The Pops in the 2000s or perhaps tuned in to the Happy Place Podcast, you will know all about Fearne Cotton and her mission to bring about important conversations with fascinating people. Uncovering her version of balance, well-being and drawing leading industry experts and public figures to talk about their lives and adversities, led her to create what is now a thriving community - The Happy Place Festival.
Taking place in London on 6th + 7th August at Chiswick House in London, and on 3rd and 4th September at Tatton Park in Cheshire, both locations offer an eclectic mix of mindful activities, creative workshops, yoga, and meditation, children’s areas, the list goes on! It’s a celebration of all things mindful. A food and shopping paradise too, this is set to be a beautifully balanced weekend.
