A weekend of events to explore living without children to build community, share stories, raise awareness and make connections.

Storyhouse Childless returns this September – with a full weekend of events, creating a space for connection and conversation to explore living without children.

1 out of every 5 adults remains childless: 10% by choice, 10% due to infertility and 80% by circumstance (according to a study at the Erasmus University Rotterdam).

This weekend is for all adults without children, whether that’s through infertility, life circumstances, or perhaps a choice to be childfree, as well as for friends and family who want to find out more about how they can support the non-parents in their families and communities.

“It will be a rewarding weekend in the company of others – a chance to talk, make new friendships and share experiences.”

Nicola Haigh, Community Manager
