Get some glittery endorphins with Disco Yoga®
Visit a Boogie Wonderland this season with some yoga that will make you forget all about the stress of present shopping and getting stuck next to Aunt Mabel during Christmas dinner. You’ll have the chance to sparkle inside and out by applying glitter to whatever body part you desire, then enjoying some energising yoga sequences to the sound of disco classics.
Build a miniature Christmas oasis
Create a tiny, thriving terrarium in this hands-on workshop where you’ll learn the history of terrariums, how to care for them and which plants work best. Leave with your very own glass jar of festive calm, which would work as a present, but let’s face it – you’re going to want to keep it for yourself.
Get your wands out on a tour of Harry Potter’s London
No books do Christmas better than Harry Potter, with their descriptions of enormous fur trees, ever-present snow and a castle filled with food, friends and literal magic. To get in the mood for the festive season, take a tour of the capital and see locations featured in the films. Who knows, maybe you’ll even see Harry himself!
