City’s learning disabilities event set to be biggest ever

A free event at the King Alfred Leisure Centre on Thursday 22 June from 10am to 3pm is set to be Brighton & Hove’s biggest ever for adults with a learning disability.

The ‘Best of Health’ event is not just for adults with a learning disability. It’s also for their families, paid carers, and anyone else interested in finding out more about ways for people with a learning disability to have fun and be healthy.

There will be a range of fun activities to try out, including:

  • Zumba
  • Therapy dogs
  • Flamenco dance
  • Hula Hooping​
  • Capoeira – a mix of Brazilian dance and martial arts moves
  • Accessible yoga.

There will also be a range of information stands where people can find out about local health and health promotion services.

Best of Health is funded by Brighton & Hove City Council and jointly organised by the council’s community learning disability and public health teams. 

It’s part of this year’s two-week TAKEPART festival, which has lots of opportunities for the whole city community to try out new sports and activities.
