Information and resources from Steven from The Recovery College, Oxford, and Jo from Oxfordshire Action for Happiness will also be available.

Wellness Wednesday was started following a conversation between Lock29’s general manager, Chris Catford, and the founder of Banbury Mental Health Mates, Tara Lever.

Chris Catford, general manager at Lock29, said: "Keeping the balance in life can be a challenge, so we’re delighted that Tara has put together such a great line-up.

"This will be an informal event in a small, relaxed setting. Everyone is very welcome, so make sure you book your place as it’s proved really popular already."
