Saturday 27 July, 10am-1pm

Join our inimitable NOW Festival troupe at Secret Garden Party. NOW Festival’s ‘Alternative Living Morning’ at SGP’s Forum explores how we might think about living differently and discovers roads less traveled for your delectation and delight. With contributions from some of the UK’s most unique thinkers, the morning will focus on creativity, the mind, connection, time perception, mindfulness and much more. All will be served with a generous dose of fun. Expect to be surprised. The morning will feature adventurers, experts and innovators, including: NOWFestival_Logo_2013
