A number of free laughter therapy workshops will take place in Bushey as part of the festival.

Laughter In The Park is a series of free park events run by Hertsmere Leisure’s Motivate4 EventsTeam which they show residents how having a chuckle is good for their health, like jogging for their insides.

Lotte Mikkelsen, certified "Laughter Yoga Master Trainer and Laughter Ambassador", shows participants how to release anxieties and worries by performing laughter techniques.

The next session takes place on Monday July 7 in The Rose Garden from 12 noon to 2pm as part of Bushey Festival. Further sessions take place on July 21 and August 18 from 12 noon to 1pm.
