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 engaging with periods was not something to be feared, but something that could actually make lives 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. Encompassing stories, science and songs, this multimedia soiree shows you how to life hack your menstrual cycle from a curse into your ‘Greatest Period Ever’. Many people have around 450 periods in their life, learn to use them wisely! 

This session may explore adult themes, it is recommended for 14+ years.

At a tender age, I learnt that my body was a problem to be fixed, with pads, tampons and soon enough with the pill. I believed I was safest while my cycle was disarmed.
