Mearfest returns to the North East
Saturday 13th of October
The Queen Victoria
This year we decided to attend Down Syndrome North East's LOOK AT ME conference on Sunday 14th October, to support them with their ongoing film and photography projects about people with various disabilities who want the world to see them, hear them, believe in them, support them. Molly would have been five this August, this group is the sort of thing she would have been part of had she lived. We are doing this for her and all her friends who she never met.
So we thought we would put every effort into a last minute event to support them further.
Last year we were amazed to receive such great support and love from the Rock and Metal community in the Northeast region, it was an exciting and nerve wracking time as Claire was 25 weeks pregnant with Amélie and we were brave and announced it to the world.
Phew, she made it and we could not be happier with our now 13 month old. This time we will be taking Amélie with us for a few hours early afternoon. She will be 17 months old by then and running around like a loon, so watch out folks! Babysitter is already booked!
Full line up to be announced soon, we have a very special surprise appearance for the day. All bands will be playing under Mollys now legendary hand print, which has gone global and has brought so many people good luck, kick started old bands and passions, has created new bands and has highlighted the painful realities of stillbirth, Not to mention, she has raised more than £10,000 over the last four years for our two charities and to individuals in need of a helping hand when tragedy or trauma has knocked on their doors. We have been honoured to help.
Please come along again and bring friends, relatives and loved ones.
Help us turn loss into legacy.
Updates coming soon.
Brian & Claire Mear pride themselves on putting on a good show. Photography is Claire's passion, only the finest collection of images will be added here by the best photographers.
