Sticks ‘n’ Stones Wellbeing Festival provides people with the tools and knowledge to develop their wellbeing, healthy living, mindfulness and have a whole lot of fun discovering new things.

The event is organised by the Paramount Foundation who partner with a variety of charities, community groups, sports clubs, and local organisations keen to showcase what they offer in the Medway towns. There is a vast number of things to try through workshops, performances, stalls, and taster sessions. Boxing, Climbing, Candle Making, musical instruments, Judo, skateboarding, Digital arts, creative arts, yoga, bowls, walking netball and children’s games are just some of the activities available to try on the day.

People also are able to explore the amazing grounds of University of Greenwich campus and grab some lunch from the restaurant whilst watching some of the fantastic local bands and artists. Unlike other social prescribing events each provider has an active presence and offers something at their stall for people to have a go at in a safe and supportive environment. There is plenty of onsite support and resources available for people to have one to one engagement and get referrals to all groups and to wider organisations.
