10am-10pm Friday - live Tibetan Dance performance & music from Lyla Foy
10am-10pm Saturday - live evening music from Shama Rahman (Jazz Sitarist)

Wellbeing by the Lakes is a 3-day festival exploring what it means to be mindful and live well in this fast-paced modern world. A curated blend of experts talks, art, live performance, meditation, movement sessions and healing that will open your eyes to fresh experiences for wellbeing- all included in your ticket!

Set in the picturesque sculpture park nestled in 26 acres of Dorset’s glorious countryside, the event brings together a wide-ranging programme to inspire and revitalise you. Broaden your knowledge, sample innovative and traditional practices for wellbeing and enjoy a playful, restorative day out.

At the heart of the festival will be the unique opportunity to witness the Tashi Lhunpo Monks creating an intricate Medicine Buddha sand mandala. On completion the sand mandala will be displayed before being ritually dismantled and offered to the River Frome.

The creation of a sand mandala is an exquisite example of the artistic tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, an opportunity not to be missed! On Friday evening the monks will also be peforming a traditional colourful dance depicting Tibetan folklore, followed by a peformance from singer songwriter Lyla Foy. Saturday evening is our candlelit picnic concert with Headline act Shama Rahman supported by Bi and The Amanas!
