About Time: You Filled Your Summer with KINDBy Angelica Malin
Looking for some great things to do summer 2019? From music festivals to half marathons, KIND Snacks UK are taking part in some of the UK’s best summer events, as part of their #poweredbyKIND campaign – and we think it’s about time you did, too.
At festivals and sporting events throughout the UK, KIND has created an experience that allows people to turn their kindness into power and they will harness the energy created by people and use it to power things that will benefit everyone! Pretty crazy, we know. They are doing this through having a mixture of DJ sets playing disco funk music, and fun fitness sessions like 80’s aerobics to get people dancing, moving and creating energy. The floor is made up of kinetic panels, so as you dance and move on stage, the flooring coverts the energy into power to light up the panels on the stand in the KIND colours. What’s more, the power banks are equipped with electrical items like straighteners, selfie lights and phone chargers, so you can be festival-ready all weekend.
At the London 10k and Oxford Half, iPads sit either side of the dance floor which are charged up by the energy created & people are asked to type motivational messages which will be shown on trackside to motivate the masses on course. Everyone who visits the stand will be given a free KIND mini bar, running or not! So, now is your chance to get involved. Here’s our top picks for things to do summer 2019:
Taste of London is ultimate foodie paradise – come here to indulge in London’s best food, drink and live entertainment at a single, stunning London location in Regent’s Park. Taking place 19th-23rd June 2019, this year’s Taste is going to be bigger and better than ever. Book your tickets here.
This June, Londoners can enjoy a series of free fitness classes followed by complementary ice-cream cones, thanks to a special partnership between Food & Lycra and KIND. The touring classes will hit hotspots and green spaces across the capital and will be expertly hosted by the Food & Lycra team. Work up a sweat in the 45 minute circuit sessions which will use a mix of dumb-bells, bodyweight and resistance bands before treating yourself to a KIND-inspired ice-cream.
On the menu is vanilla soft-serve, plus a choice of a KIND Protein Double Dark Chocolate, KIND Protein Toasted Caramel Nut and KIND Protein Crunchy Peanut Butter Bar as the flake. The classes will take place every Saturday throughout June, with three sessions each day at 11am- 12pm, 1.30pm-2.30pm and 4pm-5pm. Book your spot here.
Camp Bestival is the UK’s perfect family festival, each summer lining up a weekend of music, fun and games for all ages inside the beautiful grounds of Dorset’s Lulworth Castle.
