"Speak Your Mind" with Writing for Recovery Group members

Members of Mind in Harrow's Writing for Recovery Group, part of the Stepping Stones programme, will be taking part in the leading local open mic event later this month.

"Speak Your Mind" (run in association with the Harrow Arts Centre) is an evening featuring the best of local writers, storytellers and musicians, across a wide range of ages and backgrounds. It’s a great mix of beginners – there’s always someone performing for the first time – and published writers and professional performers, and always includes some surprises. This month’s event features readings from Mind in Harrow’s Writing for Recovery group, as they celebrate the launch of their new anthology, Life Will Be Different Now. Tickets cost £5 or £3 for concessions.

The event will be taking place on Thursday 10th September, 7.15pm to 9.30pm (doors open at 6.45pm) at Upstairs Gallery, West House, Pinner Memorial Park HA5 1AE.

If you require further details about the event, please get in contact with Phil Lawder. If you would like to find out more about Stepping Stones courses, contact Jody on 020 8515 7879 or email j. hawley@mindinharrow.org.uk.
