Feel Good Festival

Feel Good Community Festival at the Geffrye Museum

Feel good moving, making, eating and relaxing in the Geffrye’s beautiful gardens at our community festival which celebrates Turkish, Cypriot and Vietnamese culture.

Build up an appetite in the group exercise area before enjoying delicious Cypriot and Vietnamese food. Explore your creativity with Origami or Turkish marbling and play outdoor family games. Try Tai Chi, Yoga or Zumba, relax in one of the chill-out deckchairs or treat yourself to a restorative foot massage.
