With International Women’s Day on the horizon (Fri 8 Mar), Manchester Women’s Institute (WI) is gearing up for the main event with its latest meeting, tonight at Chetham’s School of Music. International Women’s Day award-winning artist Charlotte Newson will be joining the group to discuss the motivation and inspiration behind her work, including Women Like You (pictured) – the first contemporary artwork to celebrate Emmeline Pankhurst, created for the 80th anniversary of women gaining the vote. This month’s meeting will also feature a performance by She Choir, an inclusive and un-auditioned women’s voice choir who sing their own arrangements of contemporary and diverse songs. Plans for Manchester WI’s participation in International Women’s Day will be announced at the meeting too.

Tue 26 Feb, Chetham’s School of Music, Long Millgate, M3 1SB, Tel: 0161 834 9644, 7pm, www.facebook.com
