To mark the end of the tour, Manchot worked with Brighton-based organisations Radio Reverb and Brighton Oasis Project, an addiction treatment centre to produce Twelve+ (Radio), a 60-minute radio programme addressing addiction and recovery through music, literature and theatre, and the overlaps between therapy, acting and making art.

Constructed in three parts, Twelve+ (Radio) features a new drama based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale The Red Shoes, written and performed by children affected by substance misuse at home.

The other sections in the programme include a short documentary by Nicky Potts about the tragic consequences of addiction on families, as well as readings by poet Maggie Sawkins and actor Sue Devaney.
