Charles Bonnet Syndrome Information Day at Manchester Metropolitan University- Saturday 16th of March.


Esme’s Umbrella is hosting a relaxed and friendly CBS Information Day in Manchester on 16 March at Manchester Metropolitan University. The event is free, lunch will be provided and there will be CBS researchers speaking.


We are also showing ‘Aspectum’ – complete with audio description – which is a 20 minute film made about CBS by professional film-makers. This will be the first time it has been shown outside London. It traces the day-to-day CBS experience of Nina Chesworth and Miles Northwood, who both live with CBS. It is a brilliant film, which was received with great applause by the London audience.

Speakers will be CBS researchers – Dr Lee Jones (UCL/Moorfields), Dr Jasleen Jolly (Oxford/Anglia Ruskin) and Gayle Barrow (The Medical Detection Dogs), who will bring Eliza, the research dog with her. Nina and Miles will be on hand to answer questions and Judith Potts – Founder of Esme’s Umbrella – will talk about the work of the charity. There will be a chance to ask questions, to hear from people who live with CBS and discover their most important needs.
