This festival of Wellbeing and creativity is back for it’s second year but this time it is online – and it is free!
Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place Festival runs until 12th July and each day has a full schedule of events and activities promoting mental and physical wellbeing, you can roam around the virtual festival grounds and find inspiration from the amazing performances, tutorials and speakers that are making this festival so special.
You can join the festival here.
Once on the site you will find a list of today’s events and you can click on each area on the map to see what’s happening and follow the instructions to join in.
Reggie Yates, Gary Barlow, Craig David, Emma Willis, and Clara Amfo are just a handful of names lined up. Wellbeing will be at the heart of the festival and activities, talks, and workshops will be hosted by inspirational professionals from across TV, radio, music, sport, and wellness – including Bryony Gordon and Scarlett Curtis, Tom and Gi Fletcher, Gok Wan, ‘The Breath Guy’ Richie Norton, Alice Liveing, Dr Hazel Wallace, and The Happy Pear.
There’ll be plenty to do, watch and listen to for everyone, from music to meditation, cooking, storytelling, and craft workshops – and family-friendly activities for the whole household.
Fearne hopes that the digital festival will provide a sense of escapism, serenity, and calm that is very much needed after the events of 2020 to date and with restrictions on physical contact.
“It’s clear that community and connection is more vital than ever,” Fearne shared when she announced the virtual event. “I wanted to work out a way of making the festival happen to give people a way of experiencing helpful classes, workshops, and talks for free this summer. There’s even more content than we would have had at the live event and I’m excited for people to enjoy our month’s long schedule.”
Virtual areas at the festival include The Talk Lounge, Meditation Mountain, Family Retreat, Wellbeing Garden, Kitchen, Craft Village, and Pledge Wall. Boutique, ethical, and independent vendors will feature too in the online bazaar.
The festival is completely free but Happy Place encourage you to donate to their charity partners, Mind, The Prince’s Trust, CoppaFeel, and NHS Charities Together.
