Think Fest! 2024 – Songs That Saved Our Lives

ThinkFest! 2024 is back, bigger and better than ever! This year, it will back at Vicar Lane on Saturday 25th May from 10am-3pm with an exciting line up of entertainers, workshops and panels. 

ThinkFest! is Derbyshire’s first mental health style festival that opens up conversations and awareness around mental health, suicide and wellbeing in Chesterfield town centre. This years theme is ‘Songs That Saved Your Life’ and all of our performers will be singing songs that have got them through some of their toughest times as well as sings submitted by our audiences. We want to share those relatable moments as if it has helped you, it might just be the song that someone else needs to hear to help them.

We want to showcase as many organisations as possible on our Mental Health Market street which is where you come in! If you offer some form of service around mental health, suicide prevention, contributes to wellbeing or something that promotes physical activity then we want to showcase you. Across Derbyshire we have some incredible support options and this will be an opportunity to reach people you might not normally be able to reach. The idea of ThinkFest! is also to act as a preventative around mental health, we can inform the general public on what kind of support is out there even if they aren’t in need of it right now. They may need something in the future, or know someone who is in need of support, so if we can educate the people of Derbyshire with how to access these support options, they will know exactly who to turn to.

We want to make this event as accessible as possible, therefore, stall spaces are free of charge. However, if your organisation is in a position to contribute a £10 donation to help us keep ThinkFest! going and the best event it can be, we would be extremely grateful.
