MENOPAUSE BUS TOUR

TOSIN AKINDELE, SIBYLLE AEBERLI & CHOIRS FROM MANCHESTER AND ZURICH

 

SICK! FESTIVAL COMMISSION IN PARTNERSHIP WITH WILDWUCHS

Unfortunately, the menopause bus tour has been postponed, however, we will be rolling up to a location near you in autumn.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information!

For our 2022 SICK! Festival, the Menopause Bus Tour will take to the streets of Manchester with an on-board choir singing about the menopause.

Two composers, Tosin Akindele from Manchester and Sibylle Aeberli from Switzerland, have composed brand new songs, based on the experiences of people personally affected by the subject. We want to sing and shout at the top of our voices about a topic that many keep under wraps!

Tosin Akindele is a singer-songwriter, freelance vocalist and performer. She predominantly comes from a Gospel background and specialises in delivering Gospel and group singing workshops/ master-classes. She is the founder of Voices Be, a Gospel music company based in Manchester.
