International Women's Day at Rhosygilwen
11:13am Friday 1st March 2013 in What's on
Rhosygilwen will celebrate International Women's Day with a special concert on the 8th March at 8 pm.
Since its birth, International Women's Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and developing countries alike. 1975 was designated as 'International Women's Year' by the United Nations. Women's organisations and governments around the world have also observed IWD annually on 8 March by holding large-scale events that honour women's advancement and while diligently reminding of the continued vigilance and action required to ensure that women's equality is gained and maintained in all aspects of life.
IWD is now an official holiday in many countries which sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of Mother's Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.
Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. Rhosygilwen will be marking International Women’s Day with a celebration of music, harmony and humour by Scottish all female group, The Bevvy Sisters.
Mixing equal measures of sweetness and sass, grit and glamour, heartbreak and hilarity - cut with a dash of potent Scottish spirit – The Bevvy Sisters have won a uniquely distinctive place in audiences’ hearts. Their radiantly triple-layered voices and artfully wide-ranging repertoire of vintage, contemporary and original songs, interweaving genres from country to jazz, gospel to indie-pop, stand out from the crowd in both style and substance. Now with a freshly re-blended line-up, their signature musical cocktail is more intoxicating than ever:
pure vocal magic.
Catrin Miles, Cardigan’s Mayor has kindly agreed to introduce the evening.
Tickets are available on Rhosygilwen.co.uk and cost £8. The performance begins at 8 pm.
