Bring iconic women from the past and present to life in this interactive children’s workshop led by Freshwater Theatre Co. and celebrate International Women’s Day!

About the Workshop

Led by ‘Hera’, the Greek Goddess of Women (and Marriage), this workshop will introduce children to a range of inspirational women from various spheres: adventurous and pioneering women, women in the arts, women in politics and women in science.

Visiting different locations and time periods, the children will take part in stimulating and interactive activities to explore the lives of extraordinary women through history such as Amelia Earhart, Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parkes and Edith Cavell, celebrating their achievements and considering how the children themselves might become inspirational people of the future. A fantastic addition to your International Women’s Day celebrations!
