More than 30 exciting theatre, dance, visual art and musical acts from around the UK will descend on Basingstoke, Hampshire for one day only, to shine a light on mental health.
The All in the Mind Festival will have three stages in Eastrop Park on Saturday 14 September – the Dance Space, the Spoken Word & Music Stage, and the Theatre Tent. Other acts and activities will also take place around the park.
The free festival was started by Leigh Johnstone of Fluid Motion Theatre Company four years ago, to encourage performers and artists to explore mental health themes and to break the stigma that still surrounds many aspects of mental health and personal wellbeing.
Performances will explore topics such as anxiety, abusive relationships, self-harm and the challenges of caring for people who experience mental health issues. There will be many activities and performances suitable for younger audiences as well.
We try and ensure that the festival is as accessible as possible. There are disabled toilets within the park and most pathways are suitable for buggies and wheelchair users. There is accessible seating available in all performance spaces.
