A brunch experience with a difference is landing in London – one that promises to do good with every Bloody Mary poured!
The Bloody Big Brunch will be serving up the classic cocktail all day long – but there’s a catch. It can only be ‘bought’ in exchange for sanitary protection. There will be DJs, comedy storytelling & drag, a ‘red room’ and a safe space to talk all things #periodpower.
It’s an unusual drinks bill for the all-too-common problem of period poverty; a plight experienced by at least 1 in 10 women in the UK. Although the average spend on tampons and sanitary towels is £4,800 over a lifetime, those in financial difficulty often pay a much higher price. Unable to afford what they need, many are forced to use old clothes, toilet paper and newspapers as alternatives solutions – or rely on friends and food banks. In response, organisers of the Bloody Big Brunch created a simple but thought-provoking way for people to come together, talk about periods without embarrassment and help end the problem. All sanitary products received at events are donated to women-in-need throughout the country.
