Epsom Mental Health and Well-Being Festival

You may be aware that we are not holding a full week of Festival this year, to give some time to reflect on the way forward in a changed and changing world. But there are going to be some wonderful events, open to everyone at no cost. There is no need to book. Just come along. You will be made very welcome.
Monday 5 September - Monday 10 October TIME TO REMEMBER
Epsom used to have the largest cluster of psychiatric hospitals in Europe (and possibly in the world). Near the Hook Road arena is the Horton Cemetery, where over 9000 former residents of the hospital are buried in largely unmarked graves.
As part of this year’s Festival, every individual, family, charity, community group and organisation in the Borough is invited to paint a ceramic flower, obtainable from the Friends of Horton Cemetery stall in Epsom Market Place on Saturday 8 October or at St Barnabas’ Church, Temple Road, Epsom KT19 8HA on 10 October. It is hoped that 900 flowers will be painted and, in 2023, laid in memory of those who died.
