Sugar & Spice - the biggest health and wellbeing event for lesbians and bisexual women in the UK is back! Sugar &Spice 3 ME, MYSELF & I poems, pictures and photographs. It might be a sonnet on who you think is a Wonder Woman, a photograph of your mum, it could even be a painting of your cat! All you need to do is send your inspiring or aspirational image or poem in to us at the LGF and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll print it off for you, frame it and put it in the exhibition. At the end of the Sugar and Spice festivities, you will be free to take your framed work of art away with you, as a keepsake of a weekend of empowerment. We’re waiting with baited breath for your inspiring and aspirational creations, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do the rest. (Unfortunately, due to space restraints we cannot guarantee that all images received will be displayed. All those exhibited will receive a confirmation email). Sunday’s Sugar & Spice – 8th March 2009 On Sunday, the event moves to Manchester Town Hall between one and six, as we join Manchester City Council in their International Women’s Day celebrations. We will have a fantastic information stall on offer, and you can mix and mingle in the lesbian and bisexual space – run in partnership with Lesbian Community Project and the Pankhurst Centre. Finally, Sugar and Spice 2009 bows out on Sunday night with a comedy exclusive, as Barbara Nice (aka Janice Connelly star of Phoenix Nights) brings her hilarious show ‘Higher and Higher’ to Manchester, especially for Sugar & Spice. For the first time Sugar and Spice will be a weekend event and takes place over Saturday March 7 and Sunday March 8. The theme of the event will be Me, Myself and I, and will celebrate the inspirations and aspirations of lesbian and bisexual women, while empowering them to feel good about themselves and aspire to be all that they can be.
