Wellbeing Week at Windsor Yards shopping centre in Peascod Street next week offers shoppers a chance to chill out, relax and take a little ‘me’ time during a jam-packed few days of free activities, films and workshops for all ages and aimed at the mind and body.

From Monday until Sunday between 11am and 4pm, there will be a different hands-on workshop every day to encourage members of the public to de-stress and focus the mind with interactive activities from crafts and fitness, to dog petting and an outdoor cinema.

On Monday shoppers can get their creative juices flowing by painting, cutting and sticking at a card-making workshop. The activity on Tuesday will have people cycling for a smoothie on a blender bike.

For those who prefer comfort food, the cake and kindness sessions on Wednesday will offer tea, cake and conversation. On Thursday the free 15-minute beginners fitness workshops will feature classes ranging from Zumba to yoga and Pilates.

On Friday, event-goers can stimulate the mind at the interactive activities to help adults and children learn a foreign language. Into the weekend, favourite family films will be shown in a free, pop-up outdoor cinema on Saturday 17 August encouraging loved ones to bond over films like the new version of Dumbo.

On the final day - Sunday 18 August - Battersea Dogs and Cats Home will run doggy de-stress and dog toy-making workshops.

Robert Gramson, centre manager at Windsor Yards, is looking forward to the week of events, he said: “We’re all too aware how stressful modern life is and it’s more important than ever for people of all ages to look after their mind and body.

“We hope that these free events will encourage the local community to get creative, try a new fitness class and spend quality time with friends and family.

“We’re also delighted to be working with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home,” continued Robert. “Connecting with animals is a great way to relax and we’re honoured to be able to support the worthwhile work it does.”

All workshops are on a first come, first-served basis. All activities are free, but a donation to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is suggested.
