De-Stress Fest

De-Stress Fest was a chance for people across the city to spring clean the mind and refresh the body at a week-long, family friendly festival of uplifting arts & health activities.

Programme highlights included:

  • Our very own Destress Café

  • Confessions Box to share heavy secrets

  • Infectious and entertaining Laughter Yoga classes

  • Sufi Zen – a soul-infusing dance experience

  • Kite making, mandala colouring & storytelling for the whole family

  • Silent Disco – the ultimate Saturday night stress-relief

The festival came to a close with a colourful bang at Holi May Day at the Green Backyard. Fusing May Day and Diwali traditions for a fun-filled afternoon of entertainment and colour throwing.

Holi May Day has since become a yearly celebration at The Green Backyard, combining the urban garden’s May Day festivities with the Hindi throwing of the colours celebration with Peterborough Diwali Association.
