World AIDS Day Art Festival 24 Nov THT Charity

I was invited by Terrence Higgins Trust (reg. no. 288527) to see the performance and made a speech on the stage to open the World AIDS Day Arts Festival at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester on Monday 24 November. This exciting event was in the form of an evening of dance, drama and entertainment inspired by the issues around HIV and AIDS. It was presented by young people from local schools and colleges.
I met some of the young people involved with the event and the local press to took some photographs for media coverage. The event not only helped raise awareness around the importance of sexual health education for young people, it also raised money for THT's vital work through ticket sales.
I really enjoyed the performance. Thank you THT for inviting me and Thank you for the great show, warm welcome and my giant cookie!
