The programme will be open to local women who feel they've been held back by low self-esteem or traumatic life experiences.
Anna Grace Du Noyer, who is the founder of Fierce Futures, will be speaking during the evening, as part of a Q&A panel of amazing local women. The theme of discussion is breaking down barriers, and overcoming difficult experiences, leading to personal fulfilment.
And trust us, you won't want to miss Anna's story of remarkable resilience and inspiring authenticity - which anyone who has read her harrowingly candid trauma healing blog will will already know.
Anna said “I feel passionately about creating opportunities for women raise their aspirations, find their fierce and live happy and fulfilled lives. Because of my own lived experience - and that of our Fierce Futures team - we feel particularly driven to engage victims of sexual violence and abuse in our program of creative, educational and self-esteem building activities.
We also encourage women with lived experience of trauma (of any kind) to get in touch and tell us if there are any specific activities they feel would like to access, nut haven’t been able to - for any reason - cost, location or technology barriers for example. We will do our best to cater for diverse range of interests and needs”
On the big night, at The Athenaeum, club member Anna, has revealed that guests can expect a top secret announcement from an unnamed special guest.
The only information released so far is that ticket holders will be be the first to hear about a groundbreaking event, right here in Liverpool, this Summer.
A source close to the event let slip “this is going to be something Liverpool hasn’t seen before… it will be a big boost for local people and businesses, creative communities - let’s just say, it's going to be the perfect antidote to the post-Eurovision blues.”

During the last decade of the 18th Century, England was embroiled in a long and costly war with France. As the major port on the western seaboard of England, Liverpool played a key role in this war.
If Liverpool’s merchants and other professionals were to carry on trade and assist the port’s growth, they were in vital need of commercial and political information.
Information of this nature was almost exclusively gleaned from newspapers and periodicals. The usual way to read these was in coffee houses, which were frequently overcrowded and noisy. The need for a congenial environment in which to read the papers was obvious. Thus, a number of the leading citizens conceived the idea of establishing such a setting, and so the principle of the founding of a club was born.
