Mid and North Essex MIND Charity Nights

Friday 5th & Saturday 6th April 2019
For just two evenings only, we are hosting charity nights to support Mind, the mental health charity. These will be variety shows with songs, Music Sketches and comedy.

Tickets at just £7.00 each for members (plus £2.00 annual membership for non-members) will go on sale later this month. Come and enjoy an evening of entertainment whilst supporting this worthwhile charity.

Here’s a word from Ben Maytham whose idea it was to stage these charity nights.

“I am super excited that I'm producing a charity night on Friday 5th & Saturday 6th April, raising as much money as possible for 'Mind' and showcasing some fantastic talent across Essex at The Manifest Theatre. I'm even directing, for the first time, a scene from a play I've written myself! I can't wait! Every penny goes to the charity! Everyone involved is so talented, Hope to see you guys there! Having suffered with depression/anxiety myself I know this is such a worthy charity!
