Coming up: 10 years of TFW: How should we celebrate?

// 30 July 2010


So 2011 will be the tenth anniversary of Catherine setting up The F Word, which we think is so fantastic we want to celebrate it somehow. But how? Ideas we’ve floated include a party, a rally, a fundraising campaign. And should we have it, and how much would you be prepared to pay to help us cover costs?

We’ve had a preliminary chat about it, but before we start planning things, tell us what you think in a very quick survey, here, or in the comments below.

I think a charity gig would be great. Great female bands and musicians.

Definetely some sort of party/get-together. You certainly deserve to do something! Look forward to hearing more.

Yes, some sort of party and celebration would be a good idea. You deserve it! :)

Something with some comedy would be great. Comedy is fab for celebrations – laughing makes people feel good, and it’s a good way to address more serious issues without bringing the mood down too much!

Fems-tival! Fems-tival! Fems-tival!

Comedy, music, discos, speakers, workshops, the works! And somewhere in the countryside in the middle of the country so its not just the London lot that can come!

I would be more than happy to provide any support I could to this and am sure there are many many others who would do the same.
