We’ve partnered with AMV Live Music in a Christmas Social Media Campaign raising awareness for Mental Health, and every day throughout Advent in December we’re publishing a different video featuring a different AMV artist performing their own take on a classic Christmas Song from their Gosforth Studios Live Lounge.

A selection of talented musicians will be involved in this project, from pianists and strings to vocalists and solo guitarists to an 8 piece band, who’ve all filmed their own unique interpretations of classic Christmas songs to be showcased daily on our and AMV’s Social Media.

The aim is to raise awareness of the importance of being open and talking about Mental Health; especially at a time of year that can be difficult for many of us.

In addition, alongside each advent video AMV will be posting links to the JustGiving Campaign that they have set up for us. We hope that those enjoying the daily Christmas videos will donate to the campaign if they are able and help support us to continue providing services in the local area.

Anxiety, depression and other mental health issues affect millions of people in the UK and around the world every year and there are many close to us all who have and continue to suffer from these illnesses.

It’s been fantastic to see this community of artists rally around something really special and positive this Christmas time and we really can’t wait to share all the performances with you from December 1st all the way up ’til Christmas Eve.
Keep an eye on our social media channels from the start of December for your daily dose of Christmas cheer, courtesy of AMV’s fantastic artists.
