    What You Need To Know


    If you can support us financially then tickets can be purchased at £6 each by scrolling to the bottom of this page. We also supply tickets without financial cost so please email us at to reserve one of them. There is no need to explain your reasons, we want to support women without question and with dignity. Please read our privacy policy on how we handle your data by clicking here.  We do not issue paper tickets or e-tickets.  If you have booked a place then your name will be on our list of attendees at the registration table on arrival. 


    Who Can Attend?

    The meeting is open to all self identified women. You do not need to be a member of Women for Independence to attend. If you need to bring a carer to support you then their ticket is always free. If your carer is a man then he is also welcome. If you care for another adult or children then you are very welcome to bring them along. We do not provide a creche for children so they will need to remain with you during the event.



    On arrival, please register.  You do not have to physically print off your confirmation as we have a list of those who have booked.



    Lunch/refreshments are not included in your ticket. So it is up to you to bring your own packed lunch/refreshments or to buy something from a local shop.



    There is disabled access to the town hall.  We will add more details as we have them.



    There will be people taking photographs/filming on the day.  If you do not want to be part of this this that is fine but it is your responsibility to make sure you are not in shot.  We always try our best to respect your wishes but we cannot guarantee you will not appear.
