Proceeds from the events will support the development and tour of Arts Uplift’s recent production Navigating Margaret, which tells the story of the journey of a woman living with dementia.

Their goal this summer is to develop the script and engage professional actors for script-in-hand performances, and they hope to take the show on tour in autumn 2025.
