Never Better - Strike a Light Festival

Never Better will launch at Gloucester History Festival on Friday 6th September 2019, at Blackfriars Priory. This performance piece will be the result of an exciting and innovative year-long project where research teams have unearthed stories from Gloucestershire Archives that reveal personal and professional tales of mental health through the ages. Alongside this research we are gathering contemporary mental health narratives from local communities across the city.

This material will be combined and used to create a delicate and moving piece of performance, where a cast of professional and community actors and musicians will bring these stories to life. Performed at Blackfriars Priory on 6-8thSeptember 2019, followed by a short local tour 10-15th September 2019.

The aim of Never Better is to bring issues of mental health into the foreground, by exploring our past treatment of mental health to enable us to understand our present.
