Comedian, broadcaster and writer Susan Calman drew tears and laughter from the MLF audience at her event to discuss her debut memoir, Cheer Up Love. Through a searingly honest account of her own experiences, Susan’s first book aimed to help people understand depression and mental health issues.

Now, after dancing her way across our screens on Strictly Come Dancing and winning the Glitterball on the Strictly Live tour, Susan’s discovered an ability to find joy. It changed her life and she’s on a mission to get the nation to join her in defeating fear and negativity. Come and see her discuss her forthcoming book, Dancing for Joy, and her quest to persuade us to embrace kindness, joy and community.
