The final event of Mental Health Awareness week will be held tonight.

The all day music event will also be the biggest of all the events, which have been running all week in memory of Elysia Perace.

Elysia, 20, who suffered from borderline personality disorder, was found dead in Bircotes Woods on Valentine’s Day.

Event organiser, Julie Buckley, said: “I have a great deal of respect for all people involved in the treatment of mental health.

“My hope is to raise awareness of the debilitating effect all forms of mental health issues have on people by putting on various events accompanied by stalls hosted by various charities and organisations who will be there to offer help and advice.

“I’m dedicating this week to a beautiful young lady Elysia Pearce, and to the countless people I have met who all are dealing with one demon or another.

“Let’s lift the taboo on mental health and help people to help themselves by talking about it and getting help.”

Music begins at 3pm, and a variety of bands will play approximately every half an hour until 10pm.

The event is free.

Cask Corner will be open until 2am every day.
