The fourth annual Walking out of Darkness event


The fourth annual Walking out of Darkness event takes place on May the 13th in Battersea Park.

With the support of Wandsworth Council the event aims to raise awareness of mental health issues which affects a fifth of its residents.

The Council believe that these events are vital to reduce the stigma around admitting to a mental health problem and seeking help.

The 10-mile walk starts at Battersea Park Bandstand passing some of London’s iconic landmarks before ending back in Battersea Park.
