RESIDENTS walking through Eastrop Park this weekend would have seen a whole host of different thought-provoking theatrical displays.

The All in The Mind festival returned to Basingstoke on Saturday, with the focus purely on breaking the stigma that surrounds mental health conditions.

Organised by the group Fluid Motion, the event had more than 30 acts spread across three stages in the park.

The festival is a culmination of a year-long programme of work by Fluid Motion, which includes working in schools and colleges to help young people build skills, increase confidence and self-esteem, as well as working with adults with dementia using drama to help increase interaction, improve physical and mental wellbeing and reduce social isolation.

At this year’s event, there were performances from The Wheelbarrow Theatre Company, Dance Phaze and Sol Cinema were among the different types of entertainment which wowed the crowds.
