Welcome to Female Arts

Female Arts crowdfunder. Please sponsor us. In exchange for the price of a couple of drinks, we can promote your show, event or business. Take a look at our 'rewards' for more info http://www.sponsume.com/project/female-arts-magazine-femaleartscom

Women are not equally represented in the arts and in business – this ranges from a lack of roles for women over 40 on TV and in theatre, to a glass ceiling for senior roles in business, to unequal pay. Female Arts promote women in interviews, reviews and news to redress this gender imbalance. We're interested in the performing, visual and literary arts with the focus on women including theatre, exhibitions, film, literature, comedy, music, women in business, in the UK and beyond. Read more About Us and please Support Us. If you'd like us to share with our readers what you're involved in please read our Review FAQ's then email your press release to Wendy Thomson editor@femalearts.com.

The Probleming, Tristan Bates Theatre - Review

What do you get if you cross Scooby Doo with The X-Files and Starter For 10? That vivid image may begin to prepare you for the smörgåsboard that is The Probleming. Horror comedies are nothing new. From the days of Abbot and Costello Meets Frankenstein to the Scary Movie parodies, laughter and frights have long been considered apt bed fellows. Giving a decidedly British spin to the proceedings, Bad Bat Productions’ take on paranormal investigations is low on hi-tech gear, but high on characterisation.
