International Women's Day 2016

International Women's Day 2016

The Guildhall will host an event to mark International Women’s Day in Northampton on Saturday 5 March from 11am to 3pm.

After the overwhelming response to last year’s event, this new venue has allowed for even more activities, stalls, performances and networking opportunities.

Hundreds of women are expected along on the day to enjoy the host of exciting, fun and inspirational activities that include workshops and stalls offering a range of information about services and opportunities available for women locally.

There will be health, wellbeing, and taster sessions and a full programme of stage performances and entertainment throughout the day including a rock choir and majestic dancers.


Join us for an afternoon of knitting courtesy of the School of Life and take part in our laughter workshop! There is also an opportunity to speak to a selection of career women ranging from a solicitor to a business women. Come along and join us for a question and answer session with Northampton's very own role models.

What's on

All women are welcome to join us at the event to celebrate International Women’s Day.
