A small group has again come together to promote local events to celebrate International Women’s Day, March 8th, through grassroots and other events that focus on ‘Making All Women’s Voices Heard’ both here and overseas. We will promote them through a printed brochure, a website and social media. When planning your event, please check Our Facebook Page to try to avoid clashes and maximise attendances.
The core focus will be on events during the week 2nd-10th March but we will also include relevant events either side of those dates, please ask us.
Please keep to the deadlines below; we will not be able to take late entries. You are welcome to submit a skeleton outline for your event if that is all you have by the deadline and then add further detail later on the Facebook page as well as through your own advertising channels.
It is crucial that you stick to the Guidelines For Entry
Deadline for submitting entries: end of day SUNDAY 13TH JANUARY
Entries must be made by completing THIS ONLINE FORM
THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR ENTRY TO THE BROCHURE OR WEBSITE
