| About 

In 2018 arts organisation Restoke co-created MAN UP, a show about masculinity & mental health with 21 men in Stoke-on-Trent. MAN UP culminated in five sell-out shows performed at Goldenhill Working Men's Club.


And so the journey continues - the

Up Men program aims to promote 

positive mental health through creativity & connection - bringing people together without fear of judgement. We stand for openness, acceptance, fresh perspectives and positive expression. 


Between 2019-2021, steered by Restoke and men involved in MAN UP, we will be hosting a number of one-off creative events across Stoke-on-Trent.
