Last year we had the honour to host Chella Quint and her menstru-tainment at our Girl Geeks Tea Party for Manchester Science Week.

After a stellar run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Chella (A Bleeding Shame, BBC Radio 4) brings her refreshing approach to all things menstrual to her one-womb show “Adventures in Menstruating”.

Chella Quint, Manchester Science Festival 2015

Prepare to understand more than you ever knew possible about periods as Chella deconstructs menstrual stigma with wit while inviting audiences to hang ten on a crimson wave.

Come see this taboo-breaking period comedy for menstruators and non-menstruators of all genders.

‘This show shouldn’t just be on at the Fringe, it should be on the curriculum.’ (Three Weeks)

‘Chella combines education, science and comedy into a perfectly balanced show that leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy inside.’ ***** (ScotsGay)

This performance, part of the Off the Shelf Festival, is a relaxed performance.

The event is a fundraiser for the #periodpositive project. www.periodpositive.com
