Wellfest is our annual event celebrating young people’s successes.
Wellfest is a day-long event organised by young people, for young people, to help navigate a really busy and transformative time in the summer and celebrate their successes over the year!
It aims to help young people raise their self-esteem and tackle some of the issues facing them in today’s world (such as exam and results-related stresses). And, speaking of exams – Wellfest is timed just after GCSE and A-Level results days, meaning it’s the perfect time to encourage young people to enjoy life and plan next steps regardless of exam or job interview results.
OTR has run Wellfest for two years now and we’ve had a lot of fun sharing wellbeing tips, tricks and resources, along with some brilliant performances (music, spoken word, juggling – you name it!), food, and activities with other wonderful agencies from across Bristol. Our young Wellfest organisers have grown the event to become a one-stop shop for all areas of wellbeing – looking at physical health, mental health, relationships and academic stresses.
If you have a skill or activity you’d like to share for Wellfest 2019 – or you’d like to volunteer either as an individual or as part of a community of people, please get in touch using the ‘Take Part’ button at the top of the page!
