Menopause Cabaret!

Wellbeing for anyone on a menopause journey surely has to include laughter! And we’ve got you covered at our fun, laughter-filled cabaret night at Rothes Halls this May 13th. We’ve even got a free fan for everyone who comes along in case all that laughing or drinks from the bar bring on a flush!

Community Campfires

We’ll have full day workshops on digital storytelling, film making and podcasting as well as drop-in sessions if you only have time for a short story!
