Dumfries House is the home of many of the Kings Foundation's flagship education programmes which have evolved. The estate homes a bespoke Health and wellbeing centre where this event will be held. The day will offer you the chance to take part in various workshops such as Drumming circle, Knitting, Singing, Qi Gong and woodwork. Drumming circles have been well established for their health benefits in terms of stress reduction, boosting brain power, elevating mood, improving social bonds and more. No drumming experience necessary.

Knitwise - This activity also allows beginners to learn basic hand knit stitches and learn how to introduce a second colour of yarn. Alongside learning knit skills this craft form will help you find a meditative activity that can support your wellbeing.
