Our Feminist Fayre returns for another season. This is a highlight in our calendar, packed full of fabulous feminist fun. Save the date and say goodbye to the summer in feminist style with your friends and the Feminist Library team. All welcome!
It will be a packed evening, with badge making corner, feminist books and zines, vulva cupcakes in the kitchen, poetry, stand-up and music performances, wine and feminist cocktails while you browse the stalls and get your feminist shopping done. Stalls confirmed so far: Carnival Press, Book Love, Women’s Equality Party, Feminist Library Bookshop, with more to be announced soon.
The entertainment begins at 8p.m. with spoken word poets, Leah Thorn (www.leahthorn.com) and friends. Leah is the founder of Older Women Rock! and often works in collaboration with film-makers, dancers and musicians.
Be entertained by Pauline Eyre (padlet.com/pauline11/yespaulineeyre). Pauline has been standing up for a long time. Now she’s doing it in front of audiences. She needs little encouragement to bang on about feminism, so will be regaling you with stories of middle-age, menopause & manspreading. This year Pauline has been on Radio 4 Extra and Channel 5, and was joint winner of the Edinburgh Fringe Panel Prize 2018 for the Homesafe Collective.
(Pauline is replacing Charlie George, who will, sadly, not be able to join us due to factors beyond her control, but has been really supportive and helped us find her replacement. Thank you, Charlie!)
Shannon Smy (www.shannonsmy.org) of Seize the Day will be launching her debut solo album, With My Hammer, with a beautiful acoustic set of music. Shannon’s music is inspired by her activism and the women in her life, and is a feast for the soul.
Stay with us until the late evening hours, listening to feminist music and enjoying more feminist cocktails, plus there will be a very special announcement on the night…!
