Who would you walk over hot coals for...?!

Stratford Editorial 29th Sep, 2023   0

Stepping out of your comfort zone is how we learn and grow. And if we can do this while helping someone else why wouldn’t we? Join us on a transformative journey of self empowerment and mindset growth.

Firewalking is an ancient ritual practiced by many cultures across the ages and is a way of deepening connections, and developing confidence.

If you want to prove You Can whilst raising money for Mind UK, then we would love to hear from you!

You are capable of amazing things… Join The Makers’ Space on Saturday 28th October 4-9pm to unleash your potential and ignite your inner fire.

Celebrate the turn of the season at The Makers’ Space with our fire themed event.

What’s nicer on an Autumnal evening, than cosying up around a fire pit with a hot drink, toasting marshmallows, and watching some of the captivating performances on offer? With a number of workshops available, there is plenty to do for adults and children alike.

Kicking off with a performance by puppeteer, Lori Hopkins, the event will feature fired glass lampwork & children’s shadow puppetry workshops.

A tasty selection of hot food, fire themed cocktails, and craft beers will ensure you are fuelled for an evening of fire filled entertainment and crafts.

A percentage of all Entry and Firewalk ticket sales will be donated to MIND UK. Mental wellbeing through creativity resonates with our core values and we are therefore keen to support Mind UK and the good work that they do.
