20 Jun Visitors pour into Life Arts Wellbeing Festival at Chelmsford City Racecourse
A record number of visitors poured into this year’s Life Arts Wellbeing Festival which took place at Chelmsford City Racecourse on 15-16 June 2019. This year’s event saw the launch of a new yoga studio with gong bath, laughter and restorative yoga proving very popular. The festival also offered cookery demonstrations, NHS health checks, pain relief workshops, live music, mindfulness, meditation plus holistic and spiritual healing.
Chris Cozens, is the festival founder and he’s delighted that the event, with a new emphasis on wellbeing, attracted more visitors through the doors than ever before. He says: “We’re really pleased that the new focus on wellbeing has been so popular. So many people are suffering from aches and pains, anxiety and stress, or looking to boost their general wellbeing, so we’re delighted our festival can reach out to these people and offer them so many ways to transform their everyday lives.”
The festival also included a wide range of engaging speakers, such as TV presenter, author and superfood chef, Juliette Bryant, who demonstrated how to cook healthy food on a budget. Top chiropractor, Alex Cover, gave free spinal checks as well as discussing how to release blocked energies to let go of pain. Also, on offer was animal encounters’ petting zoo, a Buddha cave, over 120 stands and healthy food and drinks for visitors to enjoy.
