Welcome to Pop Up Wonderfest Saturday 25th September 2021

Following on from the success of Wonderfest in March – we are easing you back into school and college with a gathering for young people aged 13+, on themes that we have noticed come up a lot in conversations with young people. Our purpose is to educate and learn while having fun, and to use these positive experiences to create better wellbeing for each and every one of us.

This festival will be online and in real life, and we’ll be bringing together a collective of curious and creative minds to facilitate a series of FREE workshops in Swansea on Saturday September 25th. You can read more about the events below. We hope you’ll join us, it’ll be a lot of fun!
