Arts festival Femfest at new venue The Actors

One of the South’s freshest and most empowering arts festivals is back on Mon 6 – Sun 12 March

FemFest also has a new home at The Actors on Brighton’s Princes St., taking place this week – the week of International Women’s Day. It will showcase work from women, nonbinary and trans people.

FemFest is striving to be a more economically accessible festival this year. They are offering a free ticket fund for people who cannot afford to attend and maintaining a no-questions-asked approach to concessions. The festival hopes to lead the way for other arts institutions to take note so that more people can access culture in the city.

The festival boasts a host of inspiring and empowering events throughout the week. Including Dry Season from Bristol’s City Poet (2022-23) Kat Lyons. Also, Blood, Sweat And Vaginas from Paula David (who had a run at London’s SoHo Theatre last month), Madonna/Whore from Musical Comedy Awards 2021 Finalist, Selena Mersey and much more. 

“I am so excited to be heading into our fourth year at FemFest,” said Artistic Director, Maddie Ross.

“This year’s festival is looking bigger and better than ever. We have seventeen fantastic events made by women, non-binary and trans people. I’m over the moon to be starting our Early Career Artist mentorship this year with three amazing acts. We are very excited to help them to make creative and innovative work at the festival. Especially without having to shoulder the financial burden expected at many other festivals across the UK.”
