WELLAND: A Festival of Joy
Welland takes place in Elland with the aim of helping people to live well for longer by providing creative, inspirational, and inclusive activities
that celebrate and bring together our community. We’ve enjoyed two years of Welland so far, with all sorts of amazing practitioners, artists, support services, and local people coming together to provide new opportunities. Welland 2019 took place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June.
2019’s festival explored the theme of ‘Move Well, Live Well’ – ways people can live happier, more connected lives by getting moving, meeting others, and trying out new activities. It also had a uniquely global flavour, as Welland happened during an international celebration of wellness – Global Wellness Day, which is celebrated around the world every year!
