Couldn't have hoped for a better return to Stand up than last week's gig.

Expertly compered by Stephen Pilling with incredibly talented headspace acts and headliner Hayley Ellis and introducing our improv it was an outstanding sold out success.

Enjoyed welcoming old and new friends to our new venue #headspaceden and we are hoping to continue bringing people together through performances and events from all of our very talented artists.

When our mornings consist of Scottish Australian, Cockney and goodness knows what other accent and it makes us cry and snot with laughter, in spite of all the stuff life keeps throwing at us, we know we are onto a great thing.

We will be delighting you with some of our very dodgy accents, as chosen by you, in wherever you; our audience, wish to place us.

Thursday 16th of December. #headspaceden

About Headspace

Who are we?

Based at the Octagon Theatre, Headspace is an exciting and creative outlet for people with Mental Health issues, without direct focus upon these. A forum where people can freely express their individuality and utilise their skills by focusing on positive, personal, social and professional achievement and success, not on mental health. Headspace promotes positive change for the individual and challenges misconceptions often held by society.

Headspace is an expert by experience led organisation. We started 10 years ago in response to a lack of local quality creative provision for young people experiencing mental health issues within Bolton, and focus on creativity and leadership for participants. Headspace has evolved by challenging traditional stigmatised perceptions of mental health and is now training participants to become skilled leaders and artists, re-defining their roles from passive recipients of services to active deliverers of creative workshops and training.
