Mansfield Museum to host Health and Wellbeing Festival

Posted onPosted on 17th Mar

After a two-year hiatus, Mansfield Museum’s Health and Wellbeing Festival is back in 2022, from Tuesday, 29 March to Saturday, 9 April.

It offers the chance to try hypnotherapy or holistic treatments, fitness sessions for all abilities, support networks for cancer and stress, as well as drop-in events for those who fancy a change of scenery, a coffee and a chat.

During the school Easter holidays there will be activities aimed at 5 to 15-year-olds on teeth hygiene and mindfulness as well as craft projects which include making a positivity cloud and a breathing buddy.

Professional dancer Jessica Wallhead joins on Friday, 8 April to run Tik Tok dance classes and experts from Mansfield District Leisure Trust, Mansfield CVS, Nottinghamshire Mind and Ladybrook Enterprises are among the partners supporting the festival by running events.

Coun Stuart Richardson, portfolio holder for Health and Communities, said: “Mansfield Museum continues to be at the heart of the community, offering health and wellbeing initiatives such as this for everyone to get involved in, no matter their age or ability.

“It makes me proud to see us working in partnership with local organisations who can offer specialist advice on topics such as mindfulness and exercise, helping us achieve our aim of becoming a district where people live happy and healthy lives.”

Museum curator Jodie Henshaw added: “It’s great to see people feeling more confident to visit Mansfield Museum now that restrictions have been lifted and we all try our best to return to normal. Our visitor numbers are steadily increasing and we look forward to seeing familiar faces plus many new ones as we open our doors for the 2022 Health and Wellbeing Festival.”
