Joe Wicks said: “I am absolutely buzzing to be launching this brand new event at this incredible venue. Bringing people together to experience movement and fitness is my favourite thing in the world.

“My goal is to show people that fitness can be fun and to inspire everyone to keep moving in 2024 to boost their physical and mental health. This event is going to be really special and like nothing I’ve ever done before.”
