The Spring is hosting a one-off festival exploring the role of women in the 21st century.

Sophie Fullerlove, director of the Havant arts centre, outlines the inspiration behind Being Her, which includes the riotously funny Kathy Lettes’ one-woman show, Girls Night Out.   

Sophie says: ‘I’m not afraid to admit I’m a feminist. And many of my best friends are feminists too. I’m also a mother, daughter, sister and director of The Spring. 

‘I’ve recently come back to work after having my first child. A boy. ‘But I’m worried about how I’m going to bring him up in a world where campaigns like #MeToo and Time’s Up are necessary.’

As well as Kathy’s show at 9pm, there will be additional performances.

Running throughout the evening are 10 short films, narrated by Helen Mirren, which look at the lives of women across the world.

Mission Abort, a show about choice, is at 5pm. 

And at 7pm it’s Perfectly Imperfect Women by storyteller Danyah Miller.  

Sophie adds: ‘Bring your friends. You can bring your lovers and your husbands as well, though not at the same time please. We don’t want a scene.’
