Tibet is the type of place everyone wants to visit — and the kind of destination few of us will actually make it to. Don't worry, the Festival of Tibet offers up the next best thing. It'll either help ease the pain of not jumping on a plane, or make you book a ticket overseas as soon as you can.

Learning how to practice meditation, paint, cook, do yoga and make sand mandalas, all Tibetan-style, will do that of course. And there's more where that came from. For the tenth year running, the event celebrates the resilience and optimism of a people and culture under threat through a showcase of the country's way of life.

That includes the panel The Story of Us, which asks three young Tibetan activists to tell their tales, plus the festival exhibition by Tibetan artist Karma Phuntsok. Or, head along to the Mystical Tibet Concert, which includes a very special guest: Jetsun Pema la, sister of the Dalai Lama and an UNESCO medal winning educational reformer.
