Protest Feast: The F Word sees Food and Feminism collide in a specially commissioned dining experience, curated in response to some of the issues raised in the ‘The Fence and The Shadow’, an exhibition of work by Sally Payen based on her research around Greenham Common and the women’s peace camp and anti-nuclear protests of the 1980s.

Come and join us for food, song and performance in a specially designed set in mac’s theatre. Be enthralled, provoked and entertained throughout this unique event.

This event has been programmed as part of a season of events at mac called ‘Women & Protest’, celebrating female strength and solidarity.
