Mindful March

Thursday 1st March - Thursday 29th March

Event Navigation

A new and exciting mindfulness and wellbeing series of events is set to be unveiled this spring at Merchant Square in Paddington

Find your inner peace this March

Come and experience Mindful March at Merchant Square. We’ve got a range of activities and events to tickle your zen warrior’s fancy. Be here at canal side basin at 6.30pm on Thursday the 1st March to see the launch of “Flotilla”, a fabulous new art installation by Steve Messam. The lights in 180 floating origami boats will be switched on to reveal a trance-like sequence of changing colours designed to help to you meditate or even levitate.

You are invited to join us for the memorable unveiling of this unique art installation. A botanical gin and juice bar and a myriad of healthy delectable food stalls will be available on the night.

We hope you can join us for this exciting event.


Mindful March is filled with a host of additional activities centred around wellbeing, healthy living and artistic expression. You can try mindfulness exercises on Barge Fiodra, which will be moored in Merchant Square for the whole of March. They will also be running lots of on board events including yoga, poetry, theatre, art and film screenings. The popular GoBoats will also be returning to enable visitors to get away from it all and explore Paddington and Little Venice by water.

So drop in, chill out and enjoy some mindfulness this March at Merchant Square
