My friends and I really enjoyed this show - observational humour which was so close to the bone but funny too - we laughed out loud and related at the same time. Great to be able to see the funny side of our relationship with our bodies - and food for thought too. #winner#lolage

This show is wonderful - Pauline is warm, funny and so relatable. Plus the best parody of Frozen’s “Let it Go” ever…. Hilarious. If you can see it - GO.

An hour spent laughing ‘at’ ourselves and ‘about’ the human condition of being a woman. Thank you Pauline.

This show is excellent!
We laughed,
we fell silent and held our breath,
we sang along,
we felt seen and heard.
If you liked this try the #FlushFest23 Menopause Cabaret online and in person on Sept 8

An hour with Pauline Eyre - what a treat! Such a warm presence in a room, a great story with real laughs and poignant moments. Definitely worth the walk a wee way off the beaten track.
