SHE PWR is back for this year’s International Women’s Day and there’s nowhere better to celebrate true female power. A collaboration between Gorilla and the Deaf Institute on Friday 8th March starting at 4pm and leading through to the early hours.
An awesome International Women’s Day celebration with an all female fronted line up across the sister venues will be an evening welcoming those of all genders, orientations and disabilities, for just £5. The purchase of the £5 ticket will grant guests with an Access All Areas wristband to gain entry into all event spaces across both venues, with all profits going to Manchester Action on Street Health (MASH).
Gorilla will be holding live music from female musicians and a live Q&A in their studio (wristband required) hosted by DJ and Presenter, Hattie Pearson.
