A festival in January? What a good idea, and a fun way to welcome in the new year. The First Fortnight Festival aims to ‘challenge mental health prejudice through creative arts’ and runs from January 2nd to 12th 2013 (not surprisingly!). It’s got a few of my favourites from this year, including ‘Solpadeine is my Boyfriend’ in the New Theatre and ‘Silent’ in Smock Alley.
There’s also some music in the form of La Galaxie and We Cut Corners, and the Therapy sessions. There’s also some good movies including Tarnation. You can see the full line up here.
