Are you aching to feel alive again? This festival originally started with the ordinary label of a wellness festival and has since turned into a sensory feast with the sole intention of Live.Love.Life. If you are in a rut, this festival will help you!
The programme for Live.Love.Life. is based on the theory that you can not explain what makes people feel alive; this is an individual thing for each person. The festival will showcase artists, performers and authors and provide workshops and sensory experiences quite unlike any other.
The creative directors, David Bromley and Kate Ceberano, have invented a program to help you find your own quickening with life again.
Here is a list of just some of the programs available:
