The “Festival of Life and Hope” organised by Andover Community Action Group is on today at The Time Ring in the High Street and at Vigo Road Recreation Ground.
With support from local businesses, the event will have various singers and bands, costumed characters, poetry, an open mic session and more.
A spokesperson for Andover Community Action Group said “Thursday September 10th is ‘World Suicide Prevention Day’ and we are organising a day of events to not only remember those people no longer with us but to celebrate life, to come together and show that as a community we can unite and show those in need that there is never a reason to feel alone.”
Events at the Time Ring are planned from 10.00am to 2.00pm and then at the Recreation Ground from 5.00pm to 9.00pm.
