This event has been and gone.

We bring you glittering pound-shop prizes, a human clap-o-meter and total power. Who will you crown Supreme Giver of Absolutely None?

Stand-up tale-tellers slam down the stories, with a compere to keep things clean. Brace yourselves for no-holds-barred tales to make you want to rip up the rule book and riot!

Women around the globe are hitting the headlines standing up to abuse of power, and calling out inequality. When #MeToo began kick off, Story Jam and our fellow storytellers began tweeting one another the names, tales and images of inspiring super-women who stalk through the world's myths and legends. Excited by what we found, we dug deeper. Many were new to us - sidelined and almost forgotten. No longer!

From Magyar domestic warrior and Irish pirate queen, to naughty Greek pig-wife belly goddess, Japanese Sun deity, and Sumerian sword-wielding nemesis, we present myths and legends of females outgunning adversity. Wielding wit, brains, cunning, courage, righteous rage and the occasional superpower, these imperfect women embody what can be achieved when we give absolutely no fucks.

Stand-up storytellers Lucy Lill, Alys Torrance and our guest star, the excellent Exeter storytelling favourite Katy Cawkwell bring you celebratory, inspiring night meant for men as much as women. Every night features a different guest performer, a new mix of stories, and the rumpus the audience brings. No two nights are ever quite the same!

Women Who Gave No F***s has been in and out of London, to Wales and is currently touring the country.
