Launched at last year's festival in 2016, the health hub provides a focus on nutrition and natural foods.
The ever growing focus on food as a healing substance over the last number of years is an aspect we wanted to include within the festival. and, so The Health Hub hones in on discussion points surrounding natural and living foods and provides a dedicated venue for people who wish to taste and learn more about the health benefits of a whole variety of foods.
Our 2017 schedule will be launched in February, but in the meantime you can get a flavour of what the health hub is all about by checking out the 2016 listing below.
