The countdown continues towards this year’s Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership Virtual Wellbeing Festival – as the first details of some of the activities on offer are revealed for the first time.

The 2021 Festival is taking place from Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July. It is free and open to everyone working in health and social care in Northamptonshire.

There’s lots on offer this year, with a range of live and pre-recorded sessions for colleagues to enjoy – as well as some famous faces delivering keynote speeches during the week.

To kick off the 2021 festival we have a fun, high-energy Disco Diva session – an uplifting 70s-inspired dance and fitness class for you to get down and boogie to some disco classics.

The Disco Diva session was a big hit at last year’s festival, and it’s just one of many activity sessions designed to get you active, motivated and inspired across the five-day event.

Also on the cards for 2021 are African Dancing, physiotherapist tips for moving and stretching while working, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and much more.

Northamptonshire Sport will be sharing information about sporting activities happening in your local area such as Park Run, walks and open water swimming.

For those looking for something more relaxing, there will be a range of sessions to suit, including guided meditation.

Dieticians will be sharing information about healthy eating and there is support and help to stop smoking, manage anxiety and deal with the menopause at work.

The Festival is a fully online event with live sessions accessed through Microsoft Teams and pre-recorded material accessible online at www.wellbeingfestival.live.

NHCP wants you to get involved and enjoy the activities during this brilliant week – so get the Virtual Wellbeing Festival 2021 (Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July) in your diary today and keep an eye on the website for details of how to save individual sessions to your calendar.
