Thursday 8 March 6.30pm to 9.00pm - Swags and Tails performance
West End Women and Girls Centre are staging the performance of Swags and Tails. It is set on the day Margaret Thatcher dies, against a back drop of austerity and cuts. Meet Gloria, her past eroded during years living in dementia units; Mary, the care-worker getting it from all angles and housebound Lillian, locked up in her one spare room with only herself and eight bottles of sloe gin for company. Faced with the closure of their day centre will Ellen and Marlene unite and make a last stand?There’s more to life than a custard cream and chocolate bourbon
