Taking place in Bristol for the first time this October (20th and 21st), Wild & Well is a brand-new wellbeing festival based around four themes – Move, Eat, Connect and Explore – for anyone who wants to live in a “happier, healthier, more connected way”.
Wild & Well will take place in venues around Bristol’s harbourside – including M-Shed, We The Curious and at the SS Great Britain – with a huge yurt on Brandon Hill providing the focus for its Eat events and a shuttle bus linking the festival to Ashton Court for the Explore programme. Wild & Well’s Move programme encompasses fitness classes and challenges, outdoor sports, dance and a diverse yoga offering. Music will play a key role in the fitness classes, with a carefully curated soundtrack for each class, many with live DJs and musicians.
The festival’s Eat programme will throw decades of diet fads out the window in favour of delicious food that’s good for people and planet. Focusing on seasonal ingredients, rustic techniques and cooking over fire with a full programme of demos and workshops.
Connect at We The Curious will feature panel talks and workshops, exploring the world within us and the world around us, looking at how both influence our mental and physical wellbeing. And Wild & Well’s Explore programme will empower people to connect with nature and the outdoors up at Ashton Court with workshops, a wealth of outdoor activities and sports and inspirational speakers who have found solace in the natural world.
