This is a press release from Rebalance Bath.

With over 150 events and activities on offer as part of the 3-week programme, more than 70 businesses and wellness practitioners taking part, over 1000 participants booking and attending the events along with over 15 pieces of national press, the inaugural wellbeing festival was deemed a huge success and will be back next year from 25 January – 18 February.

We’d like to thank everyone who took part creating events and helping spread the message about the festival, especially Amy Williams our ambassador. We look forward to reviewing and developing the programme for 2024, while we will continue to promote wellness events organised by Bath BID levy payers across the rest of the year via the BID’s digital channels: the welcometobath website, social media, and Rebalance Bath’s Instagram.”

“At The Francis Hotel, we were delighted to create a special package in partnership with Thermae Bath Spa as part of Bath’s first ReBalance Festival. Our wellbeing breaks package resulted in some great exposure for the hotel, as well as an increase in bookings along with some great feedback from the community. We were so pleased to be a part of Bath’s first ReBalance festival, and our wellbeing package was a wonderful opportunity to showcase The Francis Hotel as a wellness hotel.”
Kate Bessant, Marketing Manager Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa said:
“We’re very happy to have taken part in Bath’s reBalance festival of wellness. It’s been such a welcome start to the year, especially for everyone that finds the festive period busy and demanding – the perfect re-set! We’ve really enjoyed introducing new guests to the tranquillity of our Spa and Bath House.”
Siobhain Archer, Fuze Dance Fitness and Dance Fit Bath said:
“What an absolute treat to be part of Bath’s first wellbeing festival! There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them, so when I was asked to put together another Dance Fitness Fiesta at Komedia, I immediately said yes.”

“We wanted to say a big thank you for helping promote our bath bomb making event through Rebalance Bath. It’s been a huge success! We can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
