Former Saturdays Frankie Bridge to meet fans from 2pm on Saturday 8th February. Bluewater Waterstones is delighted to welcome Frankie Bridge to the store. Frankie will be meeting fans and signing copies of her book,‘Open’, on Saturday 8th February at 2pm.

Frankie Bridge is best known as one fifth of ‘The Saturdays’ and outside of music has established herself as a TV Presenter & Digital Influencer. Frankie became a Mind ambassador after opening up about her experiences of anxiety, depression and panic attacks, after her hospitalisation in May 2012.

OPEN. It’s a very simple four-letter word, but one of the hardest words to put into practice. This book will help people understand the importance of talking and helping each other in an imperfect world.

Frankie Bridge, former member of The Saturdays, opens up about her ongoing journey from breakdown to breakthroughs through self-loathing, hospitalization and self-acceptance. Part narrative exploration, part practical guide, this powerfully intimate book will encourage you to be open about your struggles and seek the help you need while also giving you the push to help those struggling with their mental health.

Featuring practical guidance and advice from the psychologist and psychiatrist who pulled Frankie back from the brink, OPEN also includes notes and conversations throughout her mental health journey. By opening up about her battles, Frankie wants to help a generation of people to be more open about their mental health.

This event is free of charge but fans are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Fans must have a copy of ‘Open’ in order to meet Frankie.

She is such an incredible role model for her fans, we know we are going to make many people’s dreams come true.”
