Epsom Mental Health and Well Being Festival 2019

Once again, October will see Epsom exploring the diverse spectrum of mental health and wellbeing during this year’s Epsom Mental Health and Well Being Festival.  October 5th – 12th is when you will find a programme packed with over 70 events, activities and workshops held at a variety of venues around Epsom – and all free of charge!

The theme for this year’s Festival is “Joys and Sorrows” and you will find a safe and supportive space to explore the many joys and sorrows that life can bring.

Complementing the week, there is a competition running for people to express their Joys and Sorrows in whatever medium they like to use - words or pictures, pottery, carving, video or sounds to name a few.

Each day begins with a time of stillness and then has its own theme for example

“Some of Life’s Challenges”,

“Living Creatively” and

 “Types of Mental Distress and Time for Carers”

All of the events and activities are open to everyone who wants to come along - you don’t need to have specific issues or concerns with your mental health to attend.  With such a wide and varied programme and with over 70 events we wouldn’t expect you to attend them all but we think you’re likely to find something of interest.  You can dip in and out and attend any of these events and activities you’d like to be a part of – and remember that they are all free of charge.  Even if all you want is a place to sit and be still, you will be most welcome.

The Festival could not run without Volunteers in a variety of roles, so if you have some time to give during the week (and during preparation beforehand) and would like to help, please do get in touch.

Please feel free to be a part of our community during the Epsom Mental Health and Well Being Festival which is organised by a small, local registered charity, Love Me Love My Mind.

Discover works by two very different composers writing in the early twentieth century as Epsom Chamber Choir launches its new season. Under guest conductor James Henshaw, the choir showcases the music of Parry and Pizzetti.
 

Hubert Parry is most famously known for his setting of Blake’s poem Jerusalem. His Songs of Farewell, written during the First World War, are exquisitely crafted to reflect the emotional intensity of a man in the final years of his life.
 

In his beautiful and evocative setting of the Requiem Mass inspired by Italian Renaissance music, Ildebrando Pizzetti’s work features polyphony, plainchant and modal tonalities.
 

Tickets £14 in advance (£16 on the door)
