Warmth: A Mobile Sauna - Bethany Wells
Dates and times

The Art Hostel

83 Kirkgate, Leeds, LS2 7DJ

Inspired by Finnish sauna culture, Bethany Wells has built a mobile, wood-fired sauna in a converted horse trailer, functioning as a space for experimental performance and impromptu gatherings. Timber-lined, with wood smoke rising from the chimney, it brings a nomadic presence to the street. By inviting people to step out of their day and into the WARMTH, it offers a liberating communal experience. 

A programme of guest artists will animate the sauna over the festival with a series of funny and thoughtful short performances, whilst at other times it will simply be a place to relax. Appealing to all the senses, this warm, fragrant, subtly-lit haven creates a pocket of Scandinavia in Leeds City Centre.

Bring your own towel or borrow one.

A full programme of performances will be published on the Compass Festival website.
