Special Edition: International Women’s Day

11 March 2023 7:00pm until 2:00am

Ironworks Studios

It’s International Women’s Day!

Wanna celebrate women, the days getting longer, the clothes getting smaller, the energy returning to our bodies, nature blossoming, and being queer?

Wanna have a party?

Well, now you can. It’s our iconic IWD celebration – and this time it’s a double bill!

A film screening + a party!

The evening will begin with a screening of short films, made by us for us and a selection of International films curated by FilmPride! Followed by Traumfrau’s iconic IWD Party!

You can come to the film night, or come to the party, or come to both. Just make up your mind.



7:00pm – Watch IWD films made by your community! You are still on time to submit your video! Home made tapes and homo made tapes to the front!

8:00pm – A selection of films with a focus on female-identifying filmmakers and stories, brought by FilmPride



9:00 Doors will open for our annual IWD celebration!

Expect DJs, live performances, art and play.

Three rooms for dancing, sweating, laughing, celebrating.



Wildblood and Queenie – Brighton’s queerest disco dears deliver exactly what it says on their glittering tin. All things disco and divine with an eye on their queer house music heritage. Never guilty treasures, always blissful baselines and hands in the air anthems. Just how we like it.

BBG – brighton-based collective of non-binary, trans, women, queer and gender non-conforming DJs take us on a bassy and breaksy electronic music journey.

PrincessPersia – PrincessPersia’s Party Poppers will provide heavy techno, trance, and Eurotrash bangers with a sprinkle of hyperpop too. Come along for a set that is equal measures sexy and silly, and absorb the camp energy that this Persian Princess’s melodies will exude.

dj.Stockport – 25% donk, 25% techno, 25% booty, 25% garage, 100% bootlegs. Saucy, silly and smelly? Dropping some right stinkers on the dance floor.

I Am Fya – local DJ, artist, and musician, I Am Fya plays electronic and experimental music from the African diaspora and the global queer community. Mixing in jungle, Afro/tech, dancehall, tropical beats, hip hop and avant-pop.



A neurodivergent friendly and sober art room – for resting, screen printing, making and recuperating. Back by popular demand!

A sober room designed with neurodiversity in mind, this room is both a rest space, a magical experience, and an art making workshop!

So you don’t really like loud music, or you like it but need plenty of breaks, or you prefer soft lighting to flashing dancefloor lights, or would rather make some art and chat than go clubbing… we think you should still have the right and the space to socialise and be part of your community! Local artist Lucy Jefferys is bringin the screens, inks, and art supplies. You bring your ideas!



Drink and lounge, have your portrait take in our vulva boot, encounter some creatures and drag up!

As always we start EARLY – doors open at 7pm for the Film Screening, and at 9pm for the club- so you can spend the whole evening with us!

There will be a room designed with neurodiversity in mind. With soft seating, lower lighting, and lower sounds volumes. We will also be running this as a sober room.
