'No Petticoats Here' workshop & performance

'No Petticoats Here' workshop & performance

We have a day dedicated to the stories of First World War women through song delivered by award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Louise Jordan.

Louise tells the stories of inspirational women who challenged expectations. From the woman who dressed as a soldier on the Western Front, to the women football players banned by the FA, the ambulance drivers running the gauntlet of enemy fire in Flanders and the so-called ‘surplus million’ single women. Inspirational women, working in a time of conflict, leaving a legacy.

Starting with a 90-minute workshop at 2pm where Louise will talk about the stories that inspired her writing and teach some of the songs for performance. After a short break she will give a performance at 4pm.

Both can be booked separately at £10 each or £15 to be part of both workshop and performance. Spaces on the workshop are limited and due to high demand in other places we recommend pre-booking/payment so as not to miss out.

Please email phoenixculturalcentre@yahoo.co.uk for details of how to secure a place.

Louise has had phenomenal reviews for this project and great audience feedback elsewhere. For more information on Louise's work, see www.louisejordan.co.uk and www.nopetticoatshere.co.uk
