Liverpool Mental Health Consortium bring 'Headspace Hangar' to Africa Oyé

AT this year's Africa Oyé organisers have welcomed the Liverpool Mental Health Consortium (LMHC) to bring a quiet space for festival-goers to take some time out.

The 'Headspace Hangar' at Africa Oyé will allow people to relax, read or participate in free activities which are away from the hustle and bustle of the main event.

As one of the UK's largest free celebrations of African and Caribbean music and culture, Africa Oyé will return to Sefton Park from 12.30pm on June 16 and 17 for two free days of live music, DJs, dance, workshops, food stalls and traders.

Having grown from humble beginnings in 1992 as a series of gigs in the city centre, the event now attracts more than 50,000 people from all over the world.

On both days, the Hangar will offer reiki and massage from 1pm to 3pm, arts and crafts from 3pm to 5pm and henna art from 5pm to 7pm.

There will also be patio deckchairs for festival-goers to enjoy the sunshine.

Development  and opportunities lead at LMHC Claire Stevens said: “It’s great to once again be part of Africa Oyé.

"As we share many of the same values, our partnership with the festival is going from strength to strength.

"We’re really looking forward to being involved in the biggest and best celebration of African music and culture."
