We are so proud to officially announce that we raised an amazing £2,344.25 for Nottingham Women’s Centre!

On Friday 8th March, we celebrated International Women’s Day by launching our collaboration beer, Order + Disorder in the Old Cold Store at the Vat and Fiddle. This 4.0% pale ale was brewed in collaboration with No Half Measures and with help from local Nottingham women. We celebrated with an exclusive tutored tasting, followed by live music. 100% of the proceeds were donated to Nottingham Women’s Centre – a vital, free and safe space in Nottingham city centre. Local self-identifying woman can drop in anytime, for a cup of tea, to use the communal kitchen, washing machine and shower facilities, or just to get help when they need it.

Last week, we got an exclusive tour of their incredible building. We were shown the library full of books written by female authors, perfect for escaping the busyness of the city. We explored their incredible archive room, which is full of feminist literature from both the past and present.

The archive provided inspiration and resources for the current Dear Sisters exhibition now showing at Lakeside Arts’ Weston Gallery. The exhibition is free and is showing until Thursday 27th June. (Our previous collab with Brewster’s for International Women’s Day 2023 even earned us a feature!)

We are in awe of the work that the people at Nottingham Women’s Centre do for the community and were honoured to partner with them this International Women’s Day.

Thank you so much

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended and donated. We couldn’t have done it without you! A special thanks to No Half Measures for partnering with us to create this beer and to Steph from Murphy & Son, Lucy from Let’s Beer, Lizzie from Pop-up Print Making and the Vat and Fiddle for their contributions and hospitality. Plus, Midnight Rodeo and Catmilk for setting the tone for our celebrations!

And, of course, a heartfelt thank you to Nottingham Women’s Centre for the essential services they continue to provide all year round.

Same again next year?
