Prepare to be enchanted! The 8th Annual ‘Festival Of Life’ (www.festivaloflife.net) promises to once again sprinkle London’s Conway Hall and Red Lion Square free festival with a multitude of positive vibes this September. This unique one-day family-friendly event hosts over 50 free inspirational talks and workshops, and has over 80 ethical stalls to capture your imagination. The festival has a strong compassionate policy, where only non-animal products are available.

Conway Hall has a cosy feel, and a long history of hosting ethical events, making it a perfect match for the warm essence of this not-for-profit festival, which promotes a strong holistic ethos, and encourages people to work towards a more harmonious lifestyle. FOL’s philosophy is to present ideas to the public that will enhance each individual’s physical, mental and spiritual well-being, as well as promoting better community and environmental health.  During the day, there will be a variety of workshops, covering a wide range of inspiring ideas and activities. From learning about raw food and non-consumerist lifestyles to personal empowerment, eco living, activism, yoga, tantra, trance dance, and meditation. Indoor attractions include Jewels Wingfield – Women’s sexual Empowerment, Bernadette Valelly- Opening the Divine Femine in Sexuality, Jill Swyers – A Healthy Balance, Peter Pure – towards Healthier Eating, Star Khechara -Holistic Rejuvenation /Beautrition, and many more.

Following on from last year’s successful expansion into Red Lion Square, which is a free festival and will be mostly under cover, offering various spaces such as the Green Forum with workshops, speakers, including Steve Charter (Permaculture), Polly Higgins (Ecocide), Jon Witterick  (Freeman), Andy Paice  (Peoples Assemblies), Tom Williams  (Zeitgeist) and others. …This year’s ecostage – with live acts, including Hayereyah, Milli Moonstone, Blabbermouth, Ecstatic Trance Dance and many more tantalizing performances! This awesome musical extravaganza will be bicycle-powered (www.veggiepower.co.uk), so bring a bike and be prepared to pedal! Be sure to bring your children as this year’s event hosts a fun packed children’s area brimming with workshops and activities to keep the little ones entertained and is run by a trained nursery nurse.

The evening schedule includes a full-on dance party with live bands and DJs, featuring Gypsy Hill, hot from Shambala festival, Sean Spindrift, Jewels Wingfield and others to get the floor bouncing. Along with chill-out spaces, a magical immersive environment with DJs by UK festival favourites Inspiral, and bhajans with sacred music from the most enchanting musicians, to not only elevate your spirits further, but also give you the chance to mix with like-minded people, fuelled only by love and organic refreshments.

Being a smoke, drug and alcohol free event, FOL offers a completely different dimension to most festivals. Its diversity, pure values and vibrant atmosphere always create an invigorating, memorable event for everyone who goes.
