Loosely based on the theme of Alice in Wonderland, A.L.I.C.E. was an event that raised awareness for mental health and tackles the stigma attached to it.
Another key aim of the project was to act as a fundraiser for the local Bournemouth based charity BCHA, specifically raising money and awareness for their mental health department, SMILE.
The event was held on the evening of Friday 28th April 2017 in the unique setting of Athelhampton House in Puddletown, Dorset. The evening consisted of an immersive theatre piece, exploring Alice’s journey through Wonderland and her relationship with family members, whilst subtly hinting at emotions experienced by a person suffering from various mental health disorders.
Food was combined with informative and inspirational talks, evening entertainment and a silent auction, to help raise money for this very worthwhile cause.
