Wellnergy Heads to Wimbledon for 2nd Year

Wellnergy Festival has revealed its line-up of experts as part of a huge event programme that aims to make wellness accessible for all at new site Wimbledon Park on Saturday 15th June 2024, following its debut last summer.

The day-long festival has once again partnered with Spectrum First to create a safe space for neurodiverse attendees; this neuro-inclusive space will be run by members of Spectrum First’s specialist team, who have a great mix of research-informed knowledge, skills and lived experience.

Wellnergy combines five pillars of wellness: music, mindfulness, food, fitness and laughter, to bring you exciting variations of practices such as meditation, sound bath healing, talks and workshops, a wide range of different fitness and yoga classes, some of the tastiest street food vendors in the business, feel good music all day long, as well as a lot of laughs generated by top comedians along the way.

Headliners include TV personality, author, life coach and co-founder and COO of wellness app Shoorah, Ferne McCann (Ferne McCann: First Time mum, Ferne McCann: My Family and Me, TOWIE), who will be sharing self-development and self-growth techniques that have supported and protected her mental health, and founder of both women’s health and fitness app WeGlow, and amazing activewear brand SEFI, Stef Williams, who is on a mission to empower women to feel their best.

Nike Well Collective member and London’s favourite step aerobic instructor Julius Burphy will be sharing his infectious love of music and movement at Wellnergy, and Earth Seed Village by The Jasper Cacao Project will present an array of wonderful healers, musicians, medicine makers and much more in a beautiful space within the festival where people can relax, connect with friends, breathe, meditate, talk, and enjoy cacao.

Social media sensation Henry Rowley, supported by the fantastically funny Perry Reilly, will be bringing the hilarity, while Alex Mytton (Made in Chelsea) will be telling us about his departure from the TV world and how he has has since embarked on a journey into holistic health, healing and spiritual discovery.

Steve and Dan Flynn of The Happy Pear are identical twins and plant-based chefs from Ireland, and they will be hosting a cooking demo and a talk encouraging us all to think about what we eat a little bit more, and much-loved mindset coach and content creator who documents his life living full-time on a narrowboat Adam Floating Home will be hosting a panel focused on mental fitness made up of Pippa Moyle (City Girl Network founder), Anisha Joshi (award winning osteopath), Luke Barrow (founder of men’s mental health group Two Pints Deep) and, Lorri Haines (CEO Shoorah wellness app).

Modern day energy healer and reiki master Nieve Tierney will be bringing her ‘Energy Snob’ talk to Wellnergy as she continues to “normalise the woo woo” and make wellness more approachable, while fitness trainer born with his right leg missing from the hip Tyler Saunders will be telling his own inspiring story to highlight how we can overcome limiting beliefs and build strength of character through living a fitter, more active lifestyle.

With lots more talks, classes and workshops to discover, the programme holds something for people of all ages including a specialised children’s area featuring yoga, dance and mental fitness workshops by BEAM Academy and Happy Little Humans with a packed schedule running throughout the day. In addition there will be refreshments to suit every palate from a carefully selected range of vendors and feel good music supplied by DJs and music acts from start to finish.

Wellnergy is committed to a proactive approach to creating safe spaces for neurodivergent people attending the festival. Spectrum First, who will deliver the safe space for neurodivergent attendees, will use their skills in sensory profiling, to help people identify their needs and specifically adjust the space to meet them.

To cater for all brains and sensory needs, organisers will be dividing the space into fully separated-off ‘zones’: the Sensory Avoidant Calm Zone, the Sensory Seeker’s Stimming Zone, the Temperature Regulation Zone and the Co-Regulation Zone.

Gemma Barstow of Spectrum First says: “We are excited to be back for year two of Wellnergy. The feedback from neurodivergent people using our space last year was incredible, and it demonstrates how important it is for large events to consider all aspects of accessibility. Our neurodiverse team at Wellnergy consists of specialist, experienced supporters who are there for whatever people might need on the day. We can’t wait to see what this year brings.”

Wellnergy Festival founder Nick Steiert says: “We are so excited for Wellnergy this year. It’s amazing to see the growth of the brand and what has already been achieved on our mission to redefine wellness. The feedback from last year was that Wellnergy was one of the best days of peoples’ lives and we hope to top that this year.”
