Hooray – The Big MaDCaff Project Launches

On 27th July at Sbectrwm in Cardiff

The first event for the South Wales Group and the whole Big MaDCaff Project will be held in The Main Hall at Sbectrwm, Bwlch Road, Fairwater Cardiff CF5 3EF between 3 and 5pm on Saturday 27th July 2019

MaDCaff is a pop-up café style open mic event showcasing the musical talents of people affected by mental illness. It was set up in response to the difficulty that many very talented musicians, dancers, poets, performers who have personal experience of mental illness face in trying to get an audience for their work. The music business, venues and organisations don’t always respond well when a performer pulls out at the last minute because their anxiety has become overwhelming. We decided on the open mic as a pressure free opportunity, nobody is named in advance publicity so there’s no pressure to attend or play, it’s totally up to how they feel on the day.
