Our fitness strand is all about putting a massive smile on your face! With an emphasis on feel good fun rather than feeling the burn, you’ll find a huge line-up of classes in and around M-Shed from drum ‘n bass workouts to ballroom dancing, spinning discos to paddle boarding on the river. We’ll also have two dedicated yoga venues offering special classes with Bristol’s leading practitioners.
Up at Ashton Court, our Eat programme celebrates delicious food that is good for people and planet with a focus on seasonal ingredients, rustic techniques and cooking over fire. The Wild Kitchen will offer a packed programme of cooking demos and workshops whilst Love Food Festival will take over Ashton Court Mansion with street food superstars and local producers aplenty.
Our Connect strand will feature a diverse line-up of thought provoking talks and workshops exploring the world within us and the world around us, looking at how both influence our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. We will delve into a broad range of topics – from contentment to community, gender to grief, loneliness to technology, relationships to resilience – with an incredible line-up of speakers and experts from all walks of life.
With 850 acres of beautiful woods and parkland just 20 minutes from the harbourside, Ashton Court is the perfect setting for our outdoors activities. Our Explore strand will empower people to connect with nature and the outdoors through activities like trail running, mountain biking, forest school, foraging, hiking, wild cooking and much more.
