Whether you’re finding Dry January a little too dry or struggling to resist the leftover Christmas cheese in your quest to complete Veganuary, there’s plenty of motivation to be found around London this weekend, from a booze-free knees-up to a conscious living festival and a workshop to help you get on top of all your life admin. You’ve got this!

1. Mindful Drinking Festival

This booze-free festival features motivational talks, free cocktail classes and more than fifty traders peddling the finest alcohol-free beer, wine, spirits and craft sodas money can buy. Perfect for the sober, sober-curious and anyone who prefers dry gin to Dry Jan.
