Feel good with summer festival in Knowsley

A festival that's guaranteed to raise your spirits will be one of the highlights of the summer in Knowsley.  The Knowsley Feelgood Festival will take place, on Saturday, 6 August 2016, from 1pm to 5pm, at Court Hey Park, Huyton with lots of fun ways to make you feel good. Entry is free.  The event is themed around activities that help improve health and wellbeing, whether it be physical activity, relaxing and de-stressing or exercising your mental muscles!  In the beautiful surroundings of the Gladstone Field on Court Hey Park visitors to the Feelgood Festival will be given a variety of activities to try. Activities for children include:- den building, baby ballet, sports day games such as egg and spoon races and an obstacle course and traditional fairground rides that incorporate cup and saucers and hook a duck. There'll be activities for older people too, with the organisers of the Knowsley Older People Olympics, and music from local performers. Street theatre company Waggle Dance will be out and about around the festival entertaining the crowds too.

In addition there'll be storytelling sessions and arts and crafts workshops. Knowsley's Children's Centres will be hosting a teddy bear's picnic and doing dreamcatcher making with the children; and the Reader Organisation will be there on the day to encourage people back into the habit of reading for pleasure. And of course there'll be some delicious food and drink on sale, including:- plenty of tempting but healthy treats too. The Knowsley Feelgood Festival is part of Knowsley Council's commitment to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in the borough. It supports the Great Outdoors 5 Ways to Wellbeing Programme, which aims to improve people's awareness and connection to nature for better health and wellbeing. It takes place the day before the popular Knowsley Flower Show, which attracts thousands of visitors each year, and completes a great weekend of entertainment in the borough.

Cllr Eddie Connor, Knowsley Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health, Wellbeing and Customer Services, said:- "Last year was the first Knowsley Feelgood Festival, which was really well received with some great feedback from those who came along. With so many activities to join in with, all of which are designed to help improve your health and wellbeing, it makes for a fantastic day out for all ages."
