Your ways to wellbeing
When you attend one of our events you might be looking for a good time, a chance to get creative, an opportunity to relax or to learn something new. You don’t have to be interested in wellbeing to attend one of our events, but they are designed to help.
The Five Ways to Wellbeing – BE ACTIVE, CONNECT, LEARN, GIVE and TAKE NOTICE – are used by the NHS and each of our events is designed to support at least two of them. This means that whether you’re interested in wellbeing or not, you should leave each of our events feeling better than when you arrived.
