2019 - a festival of mental health and arts

Here's a small flavour of our 2019 memories.


We enjoyed 10 amazing days in May with over 40 events, Community Awards, and a Festival at Home programme.

All ages playing roles from ambassadors to stewards, cooks, performers and speakers. Truly a community event to remember.

With huge thanks to EVERYONE involved.

So nice to see our community coming together  and raising awareness of mental health. I was so impressed at how varied and inclusive the Festival was.

Freedom of Mind Choir

Every successful performance means a lot in terms of building confidence and self-esteem. It was clear as the choir left for home that this experience had been important and special for them.

I found that it genuinely did spark conversations about mental health - often between strangers and some I spoke to had never considered the importance of mental wellbeing before.
