There’s More To Life Than Having Children

Fertility Festival in association with Fertility Network UK
Sold out

For a long time it seemed as if involuntarily childlessness had a hidden face. But that’s all changing. Tonight a host of special guests will be introduced and interviewed on stage by Catherine Strawbridge of the national charity Fertility Network UK.

The first half of the evening will feature Jody Day, Founder of the global friendship and support network Gateway Women and author of Living the Life Unexpected: 12 Weeks to Your Plan for a Meaningful and Fulfilling Future Without Children and Jessica Hepburn, Founder of Fertility Fest and veteran of eleven rounds of unsuccessful IVF, who will be introducing her new book 21 Miles: Swimming in search of the meaning of motherhood.

The second half will comprise a special ‘PechaKucha’ performance involving a string of glittering guests who will be taking to the stage to show you exactly why there is ‘more to life’ than having children. Including Kelly Da Silva, Lesley Pyne and Louise Ann Wilson.
