November 6th 2013: Poem in Your Pocket @ the Bedlam the Festival of Mad Ideas

6th November 2013: Poem in Your Pocket

Do you have a favourite poem which you always turn to in good and bad times?

If so, come to a reading of popular Stress Busting poems by a team of trained readers from the Hearth Centre’s incredibly successful Speaking Out project. The project uses literature to spark conversations about mental health. You can bring your own Poem in Your Pocket or you can track one down using our resources. A member of the Hearth’s team will share your poem with the audience in the second half of the evening.

BEDLAM Festival of Mad Ideas is a celebration of the creative arts and mental health. The festival is part of Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s exciting re-opening season – the theatre has been fully refurbished as a result of the new Library of Birmingham development.

Bedlam takes place between the 1st and 9th November 2013 and is presented by the Rep Theatre in association with Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust.
