This weekend, Lytham will host a festival promoting well-being and alternative therapies. It’s an unusual approach to feeling good but I am all for ways to improve quality of life (although travel and chocolate are my preferences). I quite like angel card readings and although very girlie, the idea of suggestion, visualisation and positive affirmations sit comfortably with me.
The Fylde Feel Good Festival, based at Lytham Cricket Club on 20 to 22 March, marks the Angel Lounge’s
first anniversary. The centre practices reiki, crystal and angel meditations and is run by a husband and wife team with backgrounds in theology, metaphysical practise, reiki and tarot reading. The weekend promises a resurgence of 70s cool. Stalls are available and can be requested through the Facebook page
. A further event is planned for July at Fleetwood Football Club.
The event promises accessible car parking and its carefully designed layout means that this is a festival the weather can’t spoil. During the day, there will be lots of free talks and demonstrations from various exhibitors whilst in the evening live music will be provided by a range of local musicians and bands.With a fully licensed bar and on-site catering, the festival is open from 10am to 9pm on Friday and Saturday and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
