Been going hard this festival season? Seems like your body needs a well-deserved break from the ciders and danceathons. Cue, Embassy Gardens Feel Good Festival. This all-day programme of fun activities, entertainment and wellness workshops will leave you feeling suitably relaxed. Open to everyone on Saturday September 2, from 10am to 5pm, the event itself is free but some workshops will be ticketed. Here’s what you can expect.

1. Outdoor pilates and fitness classes

Get a good stretch at Ten Health & Fitness, where experts will be running a full-body session that can be tailored for individual levels of fitness, capability and experience. If cardio is your thing, a team of physiotherapists at The Running Room will be hosting a 5k run along the Thames. But if you’re more into building muscle, book into strength training with UN1T's signature UN1TY workout class.

2. Live music and interactive sessions

Of course, there’s entertainment in abundance. The Provibers will be hosting hula hooping, Disco Yoga, an obstacle course and Disco Dancing on the Sunken Lawn, all for free. You can also create your own masterpiece at the Brush and Bubbles Art Class. This fun two-hour, step-by-step art workshop is led by a friendly artist instructor who’ll help you leave with something worth sticking up in the living room. Craving a good laugh? There’s Drag Disco with A Man to Pet at Darby's which also comes accompanied by a delicious south-east Asian barbecue menu from Chef Paul Asher.

3. Wellbeing workshops

From sleeping hacks with Dr Nerina Ramlakhan to mental health awareness with The Soke, there are a plethora of well-being workshops happening at The Embassy Gardens Feel Good Festival. One of the most zen experiences is Kundalini Yoga and Sound Therapy Sessions with Remedi. You’ll get to try the teacher’s own unique signature style while healing sound baths (created using the Alchemy crystal bowls) add to the relaxed vibe. And to wrap it all up, the Community Sauna and Story Sessions will properly ‘immerse’ you as you hear a live storytelling performance while chilling out in an outdoor sauna.

4. Family entertainment

Kids aged five to 19 can join World Heart Beat’s friendly music workshop and have fun trying out a wide variety of instruments, including violin, saxophone, guitar, piano and more. Older children will surely be inspired by The Walking Theatre Company’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’. And for the littlest visitors? You’ve got baby massage and yoga. How cute is that?

5. Outdoor marketplace

It’s not all about the classes, though. The Embassy Gardens Feel Good Festival marketplace features a broad range of health and fitness brands. Trawl through a wellbeing-themed market including both much-loved favourites and new brands, such as Linnaean, Umthi Beauty and Remedi. They’ll be selling a wide range of goodies for you to take home after taking part in one – or a few of – the inspirational workshops on offer.

The Embassy Gardens Feel Good Festival takes place on Saturday September 2, from 10am to 5pm. It’s free to enter but you can book your place at individual sessions here
