On Wednesday the Socially Awkward group are visiting Barking Tales, a night of comedy with a mental health theme held at Zombie Shack on New Wakefield St. If that sounds controversial, it probably is- but rest assured, the comedians themselves all have- or have experience of- mental health issues. The organiser describes the environment as “a very small step in helping to reduce the stigma that still surrounds mental health and shows that there is funny to be had in such topics.”
I'd be really interested in reading about this. Fancy attending the event and getting involved? Drop me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday: Olympic Gold medalist and Tour De France champion Sir Bradley Wiggins will be dropping into Waterstones Deansgate to sign copies of his new book My Hour. Signing starts at 12pm. Might be a good idea to get there early.
By all means email if you want your event here for free.
