Feminist Swearing Night is back! This open-mic event invites all participants to let off steam in a like-minded environment. Whether it’s injustice, inequality that’s bugging you or patriarchy as a whole that’s getting on your nerves, feel free to rant, cite a poem, share a rhyme or sing your anger away.

People are also invited to take part in a workshop preceding the night’s main event. The workshop will give tools to anyone interested in hosting their own Feminist Swearing Night and making it safe, comfortable and joyful for the attendees.

The founders of the Finnish feminist think-tank Hattu, Rosa Meriläinen, Saara Särmä and Johanna Vehkoo will moderate the event and are joined by other special guests. Tickets for the main event are £7–£10 and the workshop is free, book your place now!
