Wellness festival at region's first dry bar

Where: The Sober Parrot, St James Square, Cheltenham, GL50 3PR

When: Thursday, January 31, to Sunday, February 3

In the spirit of Dry January, The Sober Parrot, the South West's first dry bar, is hosting a festival to celebrate the mind, body and soul.

The four-day festival takes place from Thursday, January 31, to Sunday, February 3.

The festival features interactive workshops and activities along with a side order of mouth-watering food and alcohol-free drinks.

Each day of the festival focuses on different aspects of wellbeing including exploring subjects such as the science of happiness, thoughts around body image, as well as interactive yoga and dance sessions including a sober dance party on Friday evening and a family-sized digital detox on Sunday.

There'll also be cooking demonstrations and talks on nutrition, along with pilates and meditation sessions.

The Sober Parrot, which opened its doors in May 2018, is the South West's only not-for-profit, charity-run café by day and dry bar and live entertainment venue by night.

It is part of The Hub Enterprises and is owned and operated by Stroud-based charity The Nelson Trust.

The Sober Parrot Festival day tickets will be available on Facebook and can be purchased from the Sober Parrot website.

The donation tickets have a suggested price of £15 per day. Some workshops need to be booked in advance, others will be on a first come first served basis. Please visit the Sober Parrot website for more information and booking.

The Sober Parrot is a welcoming, friendly space to meet, socialise and connect - all without the pressures of alcohol. Alongside a variety of evening entertainment, there are work spaces and meeting rooms that can be booked by individuals or groups.

As part of The Hub Enterprises, The Sober Parrot offers individuals the chance to rebuild their lives in recovery from addiction by offering the chance to gain new skills to enable their reintegration into the workforce alongside being a safe place to meet and connect with others.
