A group of us went to the Feel Good Festival at the Geffrye Museum. This summer festival is focused on wellbeing and feeling good. The event celebrates Turkish, Cypriot and Vietnamese culture, working in partnership with the local community.

We were spoiled for choice with activities. They ranged from group exercise classes to crafts including Turkish marbling. Some people got involved with gardening, while others got competitive playing outdoor games. For those who wanted to relax there were even restorative foot massages.

The highlight of the day for many was the delicious foods which had been bought by members of the Turkish, Cypriot and Vietnamese organisations. 

The weather was glorious and many people took advantage of the deckchairs in the sun. 


Thanks to the Geffrye Museum of the Home for hosting. The event was organised in partnership with Centre 151, Derman, Hackney Cypriot Association and Islington & Shoreditch and Lien Viet Housing Associations.
