Welcome to the March edition of Monnow Voice.
March marks the Monmouth’s Women’s Festival. This is the Monmouth Women’s Festival eleventh year celebrating the achievements of women. Over the years the Festival has welcomed artists, writers, musicians and other eminent women, such as Baroness Finlay, Rabbi Julia Neuberger, Glenys Kinnock and Pam Ayres to name but a few.
In endeavouring to cater for a wide range of interests, the MWF has hosted plenty of events that appeal to men, women and children – from a jazz band concert, tequila evening, wine tasting and tasty Thai food feast to Gardeners’ Question Time, Radio 4’s Any Questions, swim clinics and author-led talks (including the 2011–2013 Children’s Laureate and author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson!).
And lastly don’t forget Mother’s Day on Sunday 30th March and to put your clocks forward on the 30th March!
