My Greatest Period Ever

Sat 4 April 7:00pm Lower Town Hall
Sat 4 April 7:00pm Lower Town Hall
Don’t just go with the flow – you can use the menstrual cycle to improve your life by harnessing the power of the period.

It’s still a taboo subject – shrouded in mystery, mythology and often shame. It’s a topic people seem scared to talk about or even name. The menstrual cycle, shock! A period, horror! But what if it wasn’t something to be feared, but something that could actually make your life better? Even though over half the population will get periods, there’s a huge lack of credible information about this natural function. Enter Lucy Peach – with a heart of gold, a silver tongue, and a steel-trap wit, this ‘period preacher’ is changing the world one menstruation at a time. With stories, science and songs, this multimedia soiree shows you how to life hack your menstrual cycle from a curse into your ‘Greatest Period Ever’. You’ll have around 450 periods in your life, so use them wisely!

This show may contain strong language, it is recommended for those 14 years and over.
