Wealthsmiths Wellbeing: Virtual Events Programme

28 April 2020

Earlier in April, we launched a programme of events to help you stay healthy, provide some light-hearted education and have some fun whilst we find ourselves house-bound.

On 16th April, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab announced that the UK would remain in lockdown for at least another three weeks. In light of this, we have decided to extend the programme, continuing two of the previous series and offering four new events for you to enjoy.

Choose your favourite events

Below you will see the series we have created with experts in a variety of fields, designed to offer something for everyone. Please sign up to any and all that you feel might be relevant to you. Further information on each event is available on the links below. They will take you to the Eventbrite website, where you can register for any number of these events.

    Join Christian Day, a recent MasterChef Finalist, as he discusses one of his favourite dishes: steaks. Christian will talk you through the various different steaks on offer, how they differ, and how to cook them.
