Creatives invited to take part in Westside’s Wellbeing festival in July

Westside BID is organising a festival with a difference – putting the welfare of employees and visitors at the heart of the event.

The Westside Wellbeing Festival is due to take place in Centenary Square on 25 July, under the principal message of making ‘self-care a priority’.

And the BID is calling on wellbeing organisations, as well as local musicians and other performers, to get on board by signing up for the all-day event.

The festival, which will be held between 12pm and 6pm, follows on from a series of events, organised by the BID, which have focused on people’s mental and physical welfare.

Westside Wellbeing Festival is free for people to attend, with a wide range of workshops taking place throughout the event.

The BID wants to hear from wellbeing organisations, artists, local musicians, and spoken word artists who are interested in taking part.

The line-up of people taking part in the festival will be announced over the coming weeks. However, the BID is teaming up with wellness consultants Harriette and Jamie from Coaches for Change on the event concept.

Luisa Huggins, Media and Communications Manager at Westside BID, said: “The festival is taking place in order to promote Westside’s ongoing wellbeing programme, and a way to drive footfall to the area.

“We are actively looking for Birmingham-based businesses and organisations to put on meditation-centred activities with the aim of re-emphasising the importance of self-care and finding time for yourself.”

The festival programme will be divided up into 20-minute wellbeing workshops.
