This incredible all day event showcases the many talented women in the Mothers in Music network, hosted by MAMA Coaching.

Conversations will be led by Alice Ballantine Dykes, founder of MAMA Coaching.

Across a broad spectrum of musical genre, we are building a platform that enables these mothers to remain visible, valued and celebrated in the music industry. The evening will also host the first performance of extracts from a new Bristol opera from composer Emma Butterworth.

We will have a social in the Crypt between the daytime and evening performances (5.30 - 7) where we will offer the chance to discuss our network, and how we aim to remove barriers for mothers in the music industry.

Children are welcome during the daytime and social events. Limited numbers of FREE tickets are available for children up to 11 years of age. This will be family friendly, with breastfeeding and buggy parking spaces available.

If you can't join us on the day - or feel particularly inspired to support our growing network - we have two tiers of 'Supporter' ticket - which are purely donations to our event and cause (and do not include a ticket for entry).

Refunds only available up to Thursday 29th February.
