What is WomanKind North?
WomanKind North is a creative and inspiring full day festival set to lift, equip and connect Northern Women with their inner power. It has been designed to coincide with International Women’s Day 2020. An event for Northern Women, by Northern Women, utilising purely Northern Women’s expertise and experiences is something that has never been done before in Lancashire. It is unique in exploring the ‘Take Your Space – Make More Space’ theme via Northern speakers, inspiring stories, creative workshops. It aims to develop powerful communities so attendees leave with a feel-good factor and are armed with knowledge to achieve future ambitions.

The Inspo Stage
The main auditorium is home to our Inspo Stage. We will all gather here to start the day together and hear from our kick ass inspirational Key Note Speaker, Amanda Greenwood, CEO of Lancashire Women. Hot on the heels of this talk will be our Panel talks.
Through our Take Your Space – Make More Space theme, attendees will hear from panels of top tier speakers and experts covering topics such as:
–She Means Business (career goals, entrepreneurial stories and experience)
–Your Body Your Rules (body image, representation in the media, female sexuality)
Workshops and Seminars
Running alongside the Inspo stage in the smaller rooms we have various elective seminars and workshops in partnership with some fantastic women on topics relating to confidence building, mindful eating, female sexuality and so much more. There will also be Creative Workshops running where attendees will be able to get crafty and make something to take home with them.
We are excited to share that the afternoon will be a fun fest of music and comedy, (and of course carbs and cocktails!). We have food trucks and a Prosecco and Gin van ready to meet your culinary needs from lunchtime and throughout the afternoon. With our Inspo Stage compared by a Northern comedian, expect a whole lot of laughs and an unforgettable end to the day with your friends -whether old or newly made on the day!
