It attracted more than 27,000 visitors across the weekend in 2015 to celebrate everything that is fantastic about the City Region; with the spotlight falling on the four key themes of Business, Culture, Food and Wellbeing.   Festival Director Josh Boyd from Orb CIC explained:- "As a social value led festival we believe that it's really important to showcase all of the amazing options that people have to improve their health and wellbeing in this city, through fun and exciting activities. It's a mind, body and soul enriching line up with some great organisations and practitioners; and all sessions during the afternoon are free to take part in.
