The Festival of Life and Living

August 22nd, 2018

The Peer Support Team are busy planning an exciting Festival in Portishead. The Festival of Life and Living will take place on Saturday 22nd September, 2018 at Portishead Youth Centre. 

Join us for a day of fun, accessible activities for everyone and discover what regular activities take place near you. 

Whilst the event is being held in North Somerset, the event is being planned by the Peer Support Community Volunteers to be aimed at trying out accessible opportunities for all disabled people regardless of where they live. Such as:

Sport - Can be tried out on the day (we are in the process of trying to get or have confirmed instructors in Boccia, Basketball, Archery, cycling and more). The national Boccia championships are taking place at present.

Music – Attendees will have the chance to have free training in recording music at the event, they will also be able to take home a recording of their music.

Wellbeing - we have seated yoga sessions, tai chi and accessible dance sessions on offer – All can also be accessed in Bristol and further afield after the event.

Independent Living – OT/Physiotherapist available will be there on the day. Equipment for people with sensory losses. Kitchen and daily living aids etc will be available so they can be tested by attendees and possibly purchased on the day.

We will also have organisations available to give general advice.

The event will start at 11 am and finish at 3 pm.
