Slough Happiness Collective hosted the ‘bekindbeSlough’ festival to celebrate World Kindness Day at HOME on the High Street in Slough.

Over 120 people came together to participate in arts, crafts, singing, dancing, poetry writing, Dhol drumming, silent drumming, theremin kareoke, well-being workshops, meditation, healing and charity and health information stands.

Festival goers also brought their own artwork, inspired by the themes of kindness, compassion and tolerance, to contribute to a kind community artwork which will be displayed.

Linda Tabor-Thomas, co-founder of Slough Happiness Collective, said: “It was a fantastic evening; everyone had a great time.

“We certainly achieved our aim of bringing people together to spread happiness and show how talented, diverse and kind the people of Slough are.”

Festival goers brought donations for Slough’s Foodbank, Slough Outreach and also made art from recycled material to ‘be kind to the planet’.
