Salford Mad Pride

Free Family Fun Day


Saturday 23 July, 11am-5pm, Victoria Park, Swinton M27 4UR


Come and join us for a day of family-friendly fun and games, whilst we speak out about mental health and celebrate the creative talents of people who live with mental health issues.

Bring a picnic and browse the stalls from local community groups, youth groups and support services, before settling at the Mad Pride Main Stage where there will be an array of performances from local musicians, poets and even a sneak preview of a local play about mental health and knife crime from Youth drama Group ‘Up Ere’. 

There’s something for all the family with the WUU2 Youth bus, climbing wall, bouncy castles, hat making workshops and Lego garden where kids of all ages can help us build our own working fun fair with the Mad Hatter and all his friends!!

If you prefer a quieter space you can join Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS team in the Wellness Zone, take a mini health check or get involved in short taster sessions of Reiki, Tai Chi, Yoga, Ageless Grace, Trauma Tapping and other holistic therapies for all ages. 

Take a moment to reflect or remember those who can’t be with us at the Sea of Hands, leave a message in the Tree of Hope and explore our Labyrinth in The Secret Garden.

Mental health is something we will all struggle with; some just struggle more often than others – we want to reduce the stigma people face because of their mental health issues and we hope you can join us to show people they no longer have to suffer in silence.

    1. Look around and what does one see?
      Immense negativity?
      Doom and gloom and failure at every turn?
      Persons who never seem to learn?
      A cruel world devoid of joy or peace?
      Endless tasks that seem to never cease?
      Trauma and pain and nothing to gain?
      That is the maya, the delusion.
      Our focus on this leads to confusion.
      Look again with the third eye.
      Let go of that immense sigh.
      Look again but from a new view.
      Recover the small joys once put aside.
      Look within rather than outside.
      Maintain the spirit of defiance.
      With others forge an holy alliance.
      Create your meaning, craft it as a beautiful art form.
      Be not afraid to be a part from the norm.
      Gaze upon nature’s beauty.
      Go about your day and your duty.
      Mindful, present, with peace of mind.
      Maintaining a gentle spirit that is kind.
      Be not afraid, cast off the fear
      Discover what is important, what you hold dear.
      In struggle, walk with the other.
      Let us begin to uplift one another.
