Harmony in Health, inspired by the Prince of Wales' book Harmony; a new way of looking at our world, was set up to practically explore the concept of harmony, and how ancient wisdom and modern disciplines can help us to find more balance, health and wellbeing. Amongst their projects is a well-received multidisciplinary online course helping long Covid sufferers navigate the path back to health.

Come along, learn something new, enjoy uplifting music and help the charity!
