Part of: Storyhouse Childless

There may be tears and laughter but it won’t be a dull discussion. Being childless impacts on life in so many ways – family events and families themselves can be a minefield, dating and relationships can be tricky and negotiating the workplace is a job in itself. There are many routes to the final outcome of being childless not by choice but common features along the way can include losing friendships with those who have children then become absorbed into family life and feeling that old social situations are no longer are a good fit.

This group of local women found the opportunity to socialise with those who share common ground in a Gateway Women meetup group. Join them as they chat about their everyday lives, the highs, lows and challenges they face and how they feel about & respond to those comments, questions and situations that sometimes just keep coming and can make childless life way harder than it needs to be.

This event is part of Storyhouse Childless. A pass for the whole day, which gains you entry to every event, is £15. Find out more here.
