Ladyfest Manchester kicks off tomorrow at the Zion Arts Centre in Manchester, and it all looks very exciting!

Ladyfest is a female-focused, not-for-profit arts and music festival where, for once, women take centre stage.

Events include cabaret, burlesque and bands such as Hotpants Romance and Das Wanderlust on Friday night, workshops on Bisexuality, Car Maintenance and Sexual Health for Teens on Saturday with more cabaret and bands in the evening, and Trans Narratives, Female Sexuality and IndieMedia workshops on Sunday with legendary (apparently, I’m woefully ignorant when it comes to riot grrl) band The Slits headlining the evening’s festivities. There will also be film showings and crafty loveliness throughout the weekend.

Oh yes, and it’s not in London! I’m going, Catherine’s going, are you?

You can pre-order tickets here and the full programme of events can be found here.

The Zion Centre is fully accessible, with lifts to every floor.
