There's never been anything quite like it before - a festival that gathers together artists from around the globe with one thing in common - their work explores mental health issues.
If there had been a Madness and Arts World Festival in 1870, the guests might have included Vincent Van Gogh and Leo Tolstoy. If it had taken place in 1950, Ernest Hemingway and Winston Churchill may have been there. If it had been in 1970, you might have received John Lennon and Audrey Hepburn's autograph.
Madness and Arts 2003 is an international festival showcasing talented artists from England, Denmark, Japan, Germany, Cuba, Australia, the United States and Canada.
It's a celebration and an opportunity: a celebration of artistic inspiration and an opportunity for you to enjoy wonderful artists and performers from around the world.
