2019 - a festival of mental health and arts
In 2019 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.
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.
