femfest mini arts festival is back for iwd

FemFest, the brilliant Brighton-based, queer, feminist arts festival kicks off its third edition on Monday, 7th March to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Organisers Brighton theatre companies Girl Code Theatre and Sweet Productions set up the seven-day festival to offer women and people who have experienced misogyny a safe space to perform and engage with work.

This year they’re back again with another fantastic line-up featuring a variety of shows from life drawing and award-winning theatre to poetry, musical comedy and even origami (this is Femigami so we’re talking unconventional creations like vulvas and penises here, not swans). You can check out the full line-up and buy tickets here.

Not only is the event a great chance to see some of the brilliant work being produced by local female, trans and non-binary artists, it’s also a fantastic way to support both them and the festival charity Survivors’ Network.

A proportion of ticket sales will go towards the Brighton-based charity’s work in supporting people who have experienced sexual violence and abuse.

Monday, 7th – Sunday, 13th March; various times and prices
Tickets are available from sweetvenues.com.
