A commissioned World Mental Health Day Community Choir will top off the day’s performances, led by MD Kaya Herstad Carney. The choir which was open to all, have been meeting and rehearsing since August.

“Last year’s community choir project for World Mental Health Day was such a great success, with some first time singers citing the experience as one of the best of their lives.” – Kaya Herstad Carney, Threshold Festival.

The stage, which is to be hosted by members of improvised comedy collective; Impropriety will see performances from Wirral based vocal quartet The Night & Days and the spectacular Merseyswing, who will also run a take part workshop earlier in the afternoon for all.

Zumba specialists Movema will be on hand to give a taster of their brilliant fun keep fit routines while with a more ethereal approach to health, local artist Tristan Brady-Jacobs will give free creative making workshops.

The Lord Mayor will open proceedings for the day which will also see many of the great health focussed organisations come together to celebrate this important day in the world calendar.
