What is Fit Fest?

Welcome to Fit Fest Hampshire 2019. This year we’re doing things a bit differently, we have revamped the format, content and booking process. This year, Fit Fest is exclusively for Hampshire Primary Schools. We are inviting Primary Schools to bring groups of young people from years 5 and 6 to our Hampshire wide county events.

Fit Fest events are health and wellbeing festivals for young people made up of a range of interactive, inspiring and informative workshops as well as market stalls from many youth relevant organisations who provide information and advice (and freebies) about the services they provide

We want you people to have fun, try new things and feel more aware and confident about accessing help and support if they need to.

There are information stands available, which provide relevant information on the numerous organisations and charities that provide support for young people in Hampshire. There are some examples of the information stands below.

We recommend young people try a range of workshops which feature topics on:

1) CARE (Coping and Resilience Education); an introduction to identifying, communicating and managing emotions, particularly sadness, worry and anger.

2) Bodywise; helping young people to build positive self-esteem, confidence and body image.

3) Creative Arts; learning to express and communicate thoughts, ideas, opinions and feelings through different creative mediums. The purpose of creative arts is also to illustrate how helpful hobbies and interests are for our wellbeing and confidence. Art sessions may include; drama and storytelling, pottery and decoupage.

4) Physical Health: such as circus skills, yoga and cheerleading.
