Lancaster Health Festival Returns in July

The Health Festival will return on 29 July 2021, though thanks to the success of previous years, participants from across Morecambe Bay will be taking part.

Ian Dewar, Lead Organiser, announced:  "I'm thrilled that there is such appetite to see the Health Festival return this year, we've had lots of people get in touch asking about taking part. Unfortunately in 2020 COVID restrictions mean that, like all festivals, we could not deliver what we had hoped. We switched to a digital platform and were successful in reaching our audience, building on the feedback we've had over the years." 

"In many ways 2020 was easier than this year, we knew for sure that our audiences would be online and were able to focus solely on that. This year we have the additional challenge of planning for both a digital and face-to-face Festival. We know that getting people physically in a space is the biggest hurdle, but we trust people to make good decisions.  That's what the Health Festival is about: having fun, making a difference to yourself, your loved ones, your community and realising what you're capable of achieving."   

"In the past we've hoped for good weather, however now I find myself in the strange position of hoping it will rain as many people will be attending from the comfort of their own homes. We will be announcing more details of the activities and events as these become finalised, at the moment I'd simply ask people to save the date and check the website after 31 May 2021 and follow our page on Facebook."

Though COVID restrictions are being lifted, the Health Festival will be going ahead online, however if possible some events will become face-to-face. For the latest please keep checking www.thelancasterhealthfestival.org.uk 

If your business, community group or organisation would like to be part of the Festival please contact the team on lancasterhealthfest@mbht.nhs.uk by Monday 31 May 2021.
