Have you been on one before?

unlimiteddilutingjuice Thu 16-Feb-17 13:40:14

Yes, the year before last. It was really good.

We all stay together is a youth hostel. We have meals together and chat and go for walks. Just generally chill out with some interesting women. I'd recommend it smile

The link says they take over the youth hostel. So there are no other groups staying there. And it is only £45, including all food.

It's very friendlyIfitquacks
I didn't know anyone my first time (except for online)

Yes it is scary going to things like this the first time. But I saw a woman on face book offering to chat to anyone interested in coming, but who was nervous.

I'd love to go and I don't have the kids that weekend ....

SpartyMcsparticus Thu 16-Feb-17 19:37:40

I'm also hoping to go and won't know anyone!!!!! Really excited though.

I went 2 years ago and will be going this year.
I really enjoyed myself and am so looking forward to it. It's such a lovely environment and despite some anxiety due to being around lots of people I didn't want to come home last time!

I can answer questions if anyone has any.

I know it says children (girls) are welcome, but so many people bring their children?

Also this might be a bit short notice this time, are there any dates for the future?

Twogoats Fri 17-Feb-17 13:33:34

Is there security in case any extremist trans people turn up?

unlimiteddilutingjuice Fri 17-Feb-17 14:31:35

I brought kids when I went but my wee boy has aged out of radfem event now. Its a bittersweet milestone grin
He used to fit into the palm of my hand....

twogoats i think you might need to go outside for a bit.

shortwriter Fri 17-Feb-17 14:55:03

Betty, I have chosen not to bring my 10yr old daughter. Last time I was there there were 3 kids under 5. I know I can relax and enjoy myself more without my daughter, but I wouldn't miss it and would bring my dd if needed.

No, there's no security except the security of 40 or so women who won't stand for any shit. There's never been a problem before. In fact eve at conferences where trans have turned up to picket I've never seen more than 2 of them and all they did was hand out fliers and were quite polite with it.

Thank you. I would really like to go but it is too short notice.

GinAndSonic Mon 20-Feb-17 18:44:33

Oh too short notice but maybe next year!
