Another day, another celebration of women. And quite right too.
Here’s the brilliant Nitya to tell us more…
Last year over 600 people visited Sheffield Town Hall for a fantastic one day celebration of International Women’s Day featuring local traders, live music and a spectacular finale fashion show.
This year that idea has grown into ‘SheFest’ – Sheffield’s inaugural Fringe Festival! The main event on 12th March is SheFest Saturday at Sheffield Hallam HUBS 12-5pm – in addition to the all female traders market and live entertainment and multicultural fashion show, it also features 14 workshops, with an array of topics from Wellness and Relationships to Tech Start Ups and STEM.
Sheffield’s makers and shakers were encouraged to schedule events around this time that would fit with the IWD theme #PledgeforParity and to create a diverse range of events in the city.
