BACKGROUND

Building on the success of Party At The Green – our inaugural family-friendly music festival which in 2019 raised £1000 for SAMH – Laurieston Bowling Club is once again raising awareness, raising money and raising the roof for mental health.

Showcasing eleven acts over seven hours, bookended by a local choir and disco, and supported by a variety of games and activities including a bouncy castle and face-painting, the event will run from 1pm till late on Saturday, 22 August 2020.

The proceeds of which will go to Mental Health Foundation Scotland who for the last seventy years has taken a preventative approach to "find and address the sources of mental health problems so that people and communities can thrive."
