A Plastic Free Festival?

Ditch the plastic!

Can Lindfield Arts Festival be a plastic free weekend?  We’ll try and with the help of Aquapax water for volunteers and VIP visitors we will go along way to showing Mid Sussex that we care not only about the environment but also about the quality of the water.

Aquapax is a ‘local company’ conceived and residing here in Mid-Sussex

Aquapax is one of the purest natural mineral waters on earth (suitable for infants) with a near perfect 7.065pH low mineral balance.

It is safely packaged inside lovingly designed (beautiful) and ecologically sensible, BPA free, paper cartons. Pure fresh water heals and transports vitamins, minerals, oxygen, enzymes, hormones and glucose to the body’s cells to ensure they function properly. It gives us energy and ensures our cells can function, reproduce and repair properly!

Sadly, poor quality water can have the opposite effect, while toxins leaching from plastic bottles can defeat what we’re trying to achieve through drinking ‘fresh’ water.  Like fresh air, pure fresh water should have no taste whatsoever and anything you can taste is your tastebuds detecting something that should not be there.

If you really want to detox your body, drink pure, drink Aquapax and taste the difference!  #BPAfree #LeachFree #ditchtheplastic 🙂

Winner of the coveted International QATRAH award ‘Best Bottled Water’ Aquapax is the preferred pure mineral water of discerning people around the world. Amazon now delivers across Europe, however, if you can’t get Aquapax where you live, reach out and say hello… write to: hello[at]aquapaxwater.com 

A big thank you to Neil Tomlinson for your generosity.

Don’t forget to put the dates in your diary – 8th, 9th and 10th of September 2017 to visit Lindfield Arts Festival.

Mutant Toys or just a bit of hacking?

Have you ever watched Toy Story and thought that mutant toys were awesome?  Lindfield Arts Festival 2017  will give you the opportunity to bring an old toy to a Toy Hacking Workshop on 9th September and make it new.  Everything will be supplied but you are encouraged to start saving your old toys to transform them into hybrids.  

Children can turn abandoned, tired and unloved toys into downright bonkers and truly unique creations. Lindfield Arts Festival will have a stand on Village Day where there will be a collection point for old toys to be hacked during the Festival! 

Special sponsorship packages are available if your business would like to contribute to the local community Festival.

Saturday 17 September

When: 15:00

Where: United Reform Church

FitSteps is the result of a collaboration between ‘Strictly Come Dancing’s’ professional dancers Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite and Britain’s most successful swimmer Mark Foster.  It is a mix of the graceful steps of Ballroom and the up tempo steps of the Latin dances to create a really fun, energetic and effective way to stay fit.  It is the first time that classic Latin and Ballroom dances have been brought together with proven fitness techniques and principles to create not only a programme that can have extraordinarily wide appeal but one that also has the potential to make a real and lasting impact on the health of the nation.  For more information on Becky’s classes visit her website www.dance2tone.com

A great fitness activity designed to tone and sculpt the body using ballet technique

Ballet2tone is a completely different way of exercising using ballet movements to create many different exercises throughout the class. The intensity of the exercises gradually build as the movements become bigger and more elevated with the main focus being to tone, sculpt and condition the entire body.

Throughout the class, the whole body will be engaged in movement, even the feet. Using a dancers technique, we can develop a sleeker, stronger and more flexible physique.

Ballet2tone classes are a great way to improve your strength stability, flexibility, co-ordination & balance using every muscle. Most of all, its great fun and suitable for all abilities – no experience necessary. Anyone can come and join in. For more information on Becky’s classes visit her website www.dance2tone.com

The free combined workshop for adults incorporating both FitSteps & Ballet2tone will take place at the United Reform Church 3pm on Saturday 17th September if you would like to come and have a go.
