Programme: Asian Wellness and Vegan Festival

Thanks to the support of very talented teachers, we have scheduled many Yoga, Tai chi and meditation sessions, Bollywood dancing, and other workshops on the day. The entry fee of only £5 entitles you to attend all  sessions for free. You don’t have to pay anything extra. The main entry fee covers everything. However, we request you to please queue outside the Yoga rooms as the entry will be on  ‘first-come, first-served’ basis. If you wish to attend two consecutive Yoga sessions, you will have to leave the room when one Yoga session ends and join the queue to enter again for the next session.
