New Year, new you? If that’s the ethos you’re entering into 2020 with, then you’ll want to get down to multi-storey venue Yes on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 January. Here, you’ll find two days of holistic goodness as their Everything’s Gone Green Wellbeing Weekender returns, complete with a handful of the city’s favourite vegan food vendors such as Doner Summer, Mama Z, Chiit Chaat, Los Antojitos and Choux Choux Pâtisserie, alongside the venue’s free-from residents Firebird Hope & Pepperoni Playboy. Once visitors have sampled a delicious vegan dish they can head up to the Pink Room where they’ll find a pop-up market featuring a selection of makers including Plant Shop, Wardrobe Wellbeing, Evolve and The Norah Store who’ll all be on hand to help you get rid of that Christmas gift cash by spending it on a sustainable steal. This impromptu shopping experience will be available throughout the weekend, with traders taking part in a talk on both days entitled 2020 – The Year of Zero Waste, where they’ll share insights and advice on how we can all work towards living a zero waste lifestyle in the New Year.
On Saturday 4 January, Yes’s basement room will also play host to day of drone meditation and yoga, soundtracked by sound facilitators Golden Ratio Frequencies – while Manchester-based running club Still Waters Run Deep Group lead a free guided run around town, where runners will be treated to free vegan burger or slice of pizza once they’ve completed their jaunt. To top things off, Gongholistics take over the venue’s basement space on Sunday 5 January to lead a sound healing journey set to a gong and drum music, while DJs Meditations & Pablo Blanquito commander the sound system in Yes’s main bar to help round out this weekend of fresh starts on a calm and collective note.
