Wellbeing by the Lakes is a 3-day festival exploring what it means to be mindful and live well in this fast-paced modern world. A curated blend of experts talks, art, live performance, meditation, movement sessions and healing that will open your eyes to fresh experiences for wellbeing.
The festival is set in the picturesque sculpture park, Sculpture by the Lakes, nestled in 26 acres of Dorset’s glorious countryside, alongisde the beautiful River Frome and will bring together a wide-ranging programme to inspire and revitalise you.
This year's theme is 'Good Vibrations'. Join us in a curious journey into the fascinating realm of sound and music and enjoy the power of its therapeutic effects.
