Highlights

1) A screening of ‘A Plastic Ocean’ (7:00pm - 9:00pm) – All guests can join us at 7:00pm for a screening of ‘A Plastic Ocean’, the documentary that follows a team of experts on their 4-year global odyssey to see how our oceans are polluted by an upsurge of plastics in our oceans and its effect on marine ecosystems and human health, including endocrine disruption.

2) A led art jamming class (2:30pm - 3:30pm) – Unleash your creativity and express what the ocean means to you with paints and brushes. Not sure how to begin? Then draw inspiration from the examples painted by the organisers

3) Ukulele class (4:00pm - 5:00pm) – Come and learn how to jam like the Hawaiians and spread the Aloha spirit with this interactive musical class

4) Warriors of Light yoga class (5:30pm - 6:30pm) – Stretch your body and heal your soul at this upbeat Warriors of Light session led by Cristina McLauchlan, founder of The Vibe Tribe. Yoga mats will be provided, but feel free to bring your own!
