MUSICIAN and broadcaster Tom Robinson is set to appear at Huddersfield’s Media Centre this Thursday evening.

The BBC Radio 6 broadcaster and hit recording star will be talking about his successful fight against depression in earlier life.

The event is the highlight of Huddersfield’s contribution to World Mental Health Week.

Huddersfield arts charity Hoot is organising the free festival of arts and mental health in Huddersfield during world mental health week titled Pigs Might Fly.

A series of open arts workshops are being held across the town this week leading up to a free festival event in the Blending Shed at Bates Mill on Saturday, October 10.

All workshops and the festival itself are free and open to all.

Clare Danek, marketing manager at The Media Centre, said: “It’s great to be able to host an event by someone with the track record of Tom Robinson.

“He will help raise awareness around a subject that affects so many people.”

Robinson – best known for his hits 2-4-6-8 Motorway and Glad To Be Gay in the 1970s – will be talking in The Media Centre’s Café Ollo on Northumberland Street.

Entry is free and the talk will start at 7.30pm.
