Changes to the workshop programme

Announcements Comments (1)


The Songwriters workshop is cancelled (was Resource Centre 3:45-5:15pm). The Radical Practical Feminist Self-Defence will be running instead at this time in this venue.


The Feminist Self-Defence (was Islington Arts Factory 10am-12noon) has now moved to Saturday (see above). The Zen pussy, sound and squeeze is most likely cancelled, but please look out for signs as this may change.

There are signs up at all venues with correct workshop listings.

Hope to see you today or later this weekend!!

Don’t forget to bring a few old clothes to Ladyfest on Sunday afternoon. Beth from Pedalkraft, an expert clothing customiser, will be on hand at the Islington Arts Factory on Sunday afternoon. She will show you how to revive your tired wardrobe and put the zoot back into your suit! You could swap something with another ladyfester, or get something new from us for a small donation.
