A HEALTH and wellbeing festival is on course to be a runaway success.

The event takes place at Victoria Hall, Keighley, on Saturday, November 4, between 10am and 4pm.

There will be stalls, workshops, talks by health practitioners and a wide range of entertainment and other attractions – from pilates and food stalls to bouncy castles and face painting.

Jodi Anne Law, co-organiser of the Yorkshire Health and Wellbeing Festival, says: "We expect all 65 stalls to be occupied, so potential stallholders are encouraged to book their space online now to avoid missing out.

"Robbie Moore MP will make a few welcoming remarks with me at the beginning of the festival, and town councillor Teresa Hartley – a fervent supporter of community wellness – has agreed to join a panel for a 'great debate' which will discuss issues that people are anxious about."

Fellow organiser David Robertson says the event will also help showcase locally-based businesses.

"It's a networking opportunity for them but also some of the stallholders are start-ups and this will be the first big event to exhibit their services," he says.

"Keighley and Bradford district is full of budding entrepreneurs."
