Calling all people with a love of the brain and music!

Squeaky Gate are looking for scientists and clinicians of all levels to take part in a highly innovative musical theatre project that aims to destigmatise mental health issues and cross the boundaries between science and art.

This project will bring together mental health professionals, people with mental health problems plus scientists and clinicians working in partnership with the Cambridge based charity Squeaky Gate.

Our last collaborative event for the Cambridge Science Festival featured on the BBC Radio Four Today Programme, the University of Cambridge news page, and we published a high impact write up of the event with Nature Publishing Group.

Squeaky Gate has also performed at the Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham NIA and Cambridge Corn Exchange with different projects. Read here for a report from Cambridge Neuroscience.

For the next project, they shall be hosting some 'hit and run' public events at the Cambridge Science Festival March, 2013, culminating in a performance at Cripps Court, Magdalene College on Saturday, 16th March, 2013.

Music workshops and rehearsals run on Monday's from 5.30 pm - 8.00 pm, from the 7th January at Squeaky Gate studios on Norfolk Street, Cambridge (near the CB2 cafe)

If you would like to take part in this exciting project, getting onto the stage with the group as part of a theatrical public engagement project then please get in touch with Dr Hannah Critchlow

All you need is enthusiasm and the time commitment to attend the weekly rehearsals during term time. It would be great if you also had musical talent, but fear not as the workshop leaders can also grapple with our inner musical abilities and bring out the best!
