Here’s a taste of our Festival… as Heart and Mind meets Body and Soul – with family fun for all ages! 

Take your wellbeing to new heights with this festival celebrating 40 years of Heartbeat, the Northwest’s leading cardiac care charity.

The younger members of the family can road test a Ridgeback kids bike – (Don’t worry Dad – grown-ups can try the latest electric bikes too!). There’s also plenty of forest activity, including bug hunts and den building.

If you’re older try Walking Football or Walking Netball.  We’re even uniting the generations with an introduction to Crown Green Bowling – more and more youngsters are being introduced to this classic sport – come and have a go yourself!

Nordic walking expert Matt Gibbs will be teaching the basics of this new form of walking which is guaranteed to do wonders for your wellbeing and if you like dressing up then maybe you could join in the annual Heartbeat 2k Fun Run – as a superhero!

If you’re more of a watcher then see the dramatic athletics of the Street Monkeys Free Running and Parkour team – wow!

Relax and listen to the music of John Denver as sung by the inimitable Chris Bannister and local band Rogers Codgers plus the superb voice of Charlotte Flannery.

For the mind, we have Yoga demonstrations and a beginners class, Tai Chi and Meditation – learn to relax and leave those daily stresses behind.  To help you on your journey, we’ve 60 stalls covering all aspects of wellbeing, including getting out in the fresh air, looking at wildlife, enjoying forests and even caravans to whisk you away into the great outdoors!

Then there’s the food – just come and savour the flavour! Street food from a range of cultures, including Chinese, South American and West African influences.  With vegan, vegetarian and Flexitarian tastes catered for, we’re sure you’ll find something to tempt your palate.

Just to make sure you’re on the right track, you can even have a complete body “MOT” with cholesterol, Blood Pressure and BMI Testing.  And find how much sugar piles on those calories!

We also have a range of excellent speakers on topics as varied as Mental Health problems in sport and in children, wellbeing in the police force, technology and health, how gardening can improve your wellbeing and the benefits of “forest bathing”!

Phew!  Hope you can make it – Saturday 15th September from 10am-4pm at Ashbridge School, Lindle Lane, Hutton PR4 4AQ.  Tickets available from Skiddle
