The Full Story
In a world where you can be anything, Be kind!
Andover Rocks seeks to improve people's mental health through music intervention. In the past we have funded Alabare's "The Junction" music project and supported Andover MIND with setting up singing and guitar workshops, drumming sessions into the crisis centre, Music therapy in to the community mental health team, Music sessions into a post natal support group. Currently we are running an intervention calendar open to everyone.
We do this in a number of ways first and foremost being a musical festival. Which includes many local venues including the White Hart, The Rockhouse, The Angel, The Bridge Cafe, The time Ring and the Queen Charlotte, and runs over the course of a weekend.
We also run drumming and meditation workshops, story telling, poetry and expressive writing classes during the festival.
Here at Andover Rocks we want to help you express yourself the way you need to! It may be working together as a group or one on one we believe you will will find a home here. a place where you do not need to be afraid. We run multiple workshops that may suit your needs .
Or core goal is to provide support for those in need, to help adults who suffer with their mental health. We believe through music intervention we can help many people connect with their deepest emotions and not only help process them but also help to understand them. Making life just a little bit easier to deal with.
We are hoping to have a very large variety of workshops, We are hoping to grow further , reach further and help everyone feel safe in the meantime.
