Peterborough Women’s Festival 2018
The third Peterborough Women’s Festival will take place on the weekend of 10 March 2018. This events theme is ‘Women and the Arts’, although the theme is rather lose! We welcome men too.
On Friday March 9 at Broadway Theatre, Peterborough, Townsend Productions will be performing their latest show, ‘We are the Lions Mr. Manager’, based on the inspirational story of Jayaben Desai and her fight for dignity in the workplace, late 1970s, better known as the Grunwick Strike.

Tickets can be purchased directly from Broadway Theatre
**TOWN HALL DAY**
The Town Hall day with over 40 stalls, speakers (Julie Mayhew, Clara Pailard, Fiona Onyasanya, Kath Sansom, Eastern Angles Theatre and Police Spies out of Lives) and workshops will take place on Saturday March 10, from 11 – 3.
At the Ostrich Inn, North Street in the evening of March 10, featuring Gaptooth, Gin and Yonic and Dolls (TBC). Join us from 7pm.
Watch out for other events Metal Culture (Cine Sisters Mar 8).
N.B. We have no budget for the event, many people give up their time to help put this together and to take part, which is amazing. We may be able to pay expenses for speakers / performers who have come over long distances, and will try to raise money on the day with bucket collections. PWF is a PTUC initative to help, inspire and draw attention to the brilliant things that our community of women do.
