The FiLiA conference is in Cardiff this year …
71

EmpressaurusWitchDoesntBurn · 03/06/2022 13:32

…and it will be BRILLIANT. Saturday 22- Monday 24 October 2022.

It’s a fabulous opportunity to meet, learn from and share with like-minded feminists. If you don’t know anyone when you go, don’t worry - you will by the end!

The website is www.filia.org.uk/ and here’s a video of previous highlights to give you an idea of what to expect. m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEO6-HW6JdU&feature=youtu.be

I'm waiting for it coming to Scotland (next year I think?) then I'll be there...

Is it ok for young teenagers do you think?

Glasgow next year yes. And yes, possibly not all the events would be ok for young teenagers but there are plenty that would be!

Thanks op, last year was just amazing. The speakers were great, the sense of kinship between women who have never met, the atmosphere was just all incredible. I can't wait for Cardiff, I've trike never experienced anything like it before.💜

I love coming down to breakfast in whichever hotel & spotting familiar T-shirts! As you say, purpleboy, the atmosphere’s incredible. I always come back knackered but thoroughly recharged at the same time.

I walked in with my "this witch doesn't burn" t shirt and bumped into Angela Wild. Grin

Parking tanks right on the WAG's lawn. Is Holyrood next?

I wanted to book early on and could only come for one day but without even a draft programme it was hard to choose a day. I'll take a look now but wish they could have a theme for each day in advance.
It sounds a great place to be with other women.

I've booked for a second year in a row and can't wait. Taking my 14 yo again. She got so much out of it last year.

That’s brilliant!

I got chatting with the woman sitting next to me once & we realised we were both on FWR 😁

I have my hotel room booked for my first Filia conference. I am excited and petrified, as it will be the first time I have been away from all my family in 15 years!

Plus first time travelling in a wheelchair so not looking forward to using the railways assistance services.

But as I keep telling my kids, there is nothing wrong with being frightened/worried/scared about something but shouldnt let those negative emotions stop you doing things.

So I am taking my own advice, pulling up my big girl pants and getting on with things 😊

Hope to knowingly or unknowingly meet some Mumsnetters there. 😁

Thanks for the reminder Emperessuarus, I will have to book my ticket (what do we think the odds are that JKR will be speaking?)

Am I correct that the venue hasn't been announced yet? I know it's Cardiff but it would be good to know exactly where before booking a hotel.

We'd all love JKR to be speaking, @Thingybob!

The venue hasn't been announced yet but it's very central.

I'm just waiting to hear where the venue is to decide whether I'm going to stay in a hotel or travel in each day...

@Worrysaboutalot - I did it on my own in a wheelchair with two children in 2018 (I think? manchester...). It was terrifying but we managed brilliantly 😁

I think it's been said it's very central and near to the train station.

Yes. I also think the hotels will fill up quite quickly so it’s worth booking reasonably soon.
