Onside: A celebration of women's football

02 Jul 2022 10:30 - 15:00

In the morning, from 11am, there will be refreshments and a series of accessible talks:

  • The History of the Women's game
  • What it's like to be a woman sports journalist (with Nancy Frostick from The Athletic)
  • The money that's coming into the game
  • How much is it a level playing field?

Throughout the day there will be music from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra quartet and you will be entered into a competition to win free tickets for the Sheffield Women's Euros games.

In the afternoon the RPO will explore how we all engage with culture, music and sport in different ways, with a Q&A featuring composer Charlotte Harding, Football historian Jean Williams and music professor John Pymm.

And, if you want to finish the day in style, then The Showroom cinema are also doing a screening of Bend It Like Beckham.
