A new festival is descending on the Isle of Wight today (Sunday).

Meditation and mindfulness is taking centre stage at Aspire Ryde’s Trinity Building from 11am until 4.15pm.

Organised by The Good Mental Health Co-operative and sponsored by Aspire Ryde and Ryde Town Council, the Isle of Wight Festival of The Mind aims to bring people together to talk about what makes them happy, try new activities, and to channel a sense of well-being.

The event will feature a colour walk, yoga, meditation and workshops, among other activities.

Co-Organiser Sandy Hector said:

“We’re hoping that people will be able to find some ways to make their future more exciting, and give them something to inspire them. Hopefully we’ll all enjoy the day and go away with some other things to think about.”
