Festival rolls out 40 events

MORE than 40 different events are to form this year’s Lothian Mental Health Arts and Film Festival.

The festival, which launches on September 28, will include a wellbeing Mela, arts and crafts, theatre, exhibitions, film nights and workshops culminating in a Ceilidh.

Now in its fourth year in Lothian, the festival aims to challenge perceptions about mental health.

Festival director Lee Knifton said: “The partnerships with major arts centres and community groups have produced inspiring events for all ages.”
