With a day of performance, talks and lots of things to see, celebrate International Women’s Day 2022 at Central Library.

This festival event will feature live music, dance, readings, and also speeches from influential women living and working in Manchester. There will also be the chance to connect with local community groups and find out more about the work they do.

Women can also attend a brilliant free workshop – all about safe cycling – with Councillor Eve Holt. The workshop will take place from 2:00 pm – 2:45 pm in the Chief Librarian’s Room on the 3rd floor. Places must be booked in advance.

Tickets for the festival are free but must be booked in advance.
