‘Chinfest’ was founded two years ago in memory of Tracey 'Chin' Chinnock who lost her battle with mental health.

Around 800 people turned up to last year’s event.

Eve said: “Last year was really good, we had around 800 people turn up, so we doubled from the year before, and the stage went down a storm as well.

“This year I’m hoping we can double the numbers again. We’re trying to get the event out to as many people as possible.

“There’s so many people struggling with either their mental health or grief and it’s a perfect day to come together and remember people and be in a happier place.”

For children’s entertainment there will be a free kids zone ran by Youth Works with various workshops and activities. There will also be free unlimited bouncy castles, free face painting and glitter tattoos.

Along with all this, there will be a silent disco running all day, archery and axe throwing from the Vikings of Mercia, and also a day raffle for which they’ve had some big prizes donated.

The well-being area will also be back again.
