A WALK, SONGS & TALKS for MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

by STEVE WHARTON

Along the walk I’ll be staging free, mini-gigs with a talk running between the songs. Although my songs are not overtly about mental health, they do link with themes I’ll be covering in the talk and there’ll be time for discussion afterwards. A couple of the events will also feature some guests, playing music and adding special themes to the evening.

Featuring at Thorney How on Friday 18th July – 8.30pm

Another exciting bit of news is that Frank Turner has offered to shout about this project on twitter and facebook to all his fans. He’s also been kind enough to suggest one of his songs for me to play at the gigs. To find out which one… you’ll have to come along.

All events are taking place in Cumbria, northwest England, July 2014.
