Self-care: Why this band does self-care sessions with its fans

Milk Teeth, an “alternative, grungy, pop-rock band”, has started a new type of meet-and-greet with its fans.

Their lead singer and bassist Becky Blomfield came up with the idea of a mental health self-care session before gigs.

The three-piece do arts and crafts, drawing and patchmaking as a way of “taking a break from whatever you’ve got going on behind-the-scenes”.
