On Wednesday, November 14 The Gin Temple, Norwich, will be hosting Wellbeing, Nature and A Little Conversation.

The event has been created by Norfolk chef Charlie Hodson, who has struggled with mental health, Andrew Dellbridge, Teresa Gizzi and Ellen Mary.

Teaming up with The Gin Temple, supported by Redwell Brewing, the night moves away from the idea of talking directly on mental health and celebrates the fact of socialising with a relaxed atmosphere.

There will be burger making lessons from Coxfords Butchers alongside The Pye Bakery and bulb planting from gardening presenter and writer Ellen Mary.

Mr Hodson said: 'Everybody is different. Their anxiety and depression is different. So why not have a night where anyone can come freely, get together and talk.'

Talks begin at 7pm with activities until 9pm. No tickets required.
