The two-day festival (March 11-12), will include talks, conversations, workshops and storytelling for children
Among the subjects tackled will be the menopause, mental health, body image, money and sports opportunities for girls and women, with sessions on the main Storyhouse stage and throughout the venue, including the restaurant.
Storyhouse creative director Suzie Henderson says: “I’m so pleased Storyhouse can present this fantastic new festival, celebrating Chester’s women and girls and helping them to flourish.
“Festival-goers can expect to hear from a host of leading speakers and practitioners who are all passionate about their expert fields, and I know everyone who attends – whether they’re eight or 80 – will find the weekend enlightening and stimulating.”
