Welcome to the Menopause Café Nottingham

Following the success of the first Menopause Cafe Nottingham on 9 May, we are pleased to announce a further event in Mapperley on Wednesday, 26 September.


About Menopause Café?

Rachel Weiss started the first Menopause Cafe in Perth, Scotland and since then it has grown exponentially with cafés springing up across the UK.

A Menopause Café is an agenda-free discussion about all aspects of the menopause.  It is run on a not-for-profit basis, aside from an investment in a cup of tea and a slice of cake if you so wish (on the menu at The Punch Bowl in Mapperley).

The Café is open to people of all genders, ages, walks of life and ethnicity. Come and join our informal discussion about all things perimenopause, menopause and the whole issue of embracing life after menopause.  Participants are encouraged to share experiences or just listen and learn from each other in a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment.

Menopause can seem a bit of a taboo subject.  Perhaps you haven’t had the opportunity to share your thoughts or questions before with like-minded people.


Your special invitation

We’d love you to join us at the second Menopause Cafe in Nottingham.  The details of the event are below:

Date: Wednesday 26 September 2018 , 19:00 – 21:00
Venue: The Punch Bowl, 214 Porchester Road, Mapperley NG3 6HG
Entry fee: FREE
Hosts: Koren Harris and Bridget Hazell



What happens at the events?

Someone will be there to greet you, introduce the principles, and keep the conversation flowing (although we usually find the conversation flows without any help).

There is no speaker or expert, no agenda, no product being sold: just a safe space to have a conversation and the only thing we encourage is talking about the menopause – this might be how it has impacted you or others; how you have coped; what worked for you; or just to be better informed before it occurs.

The Menopause Café movement’s overall aim is to increase awareness of the impact of the menopause on those experiencing it and their friends, colleagues and families, so that we can make conscious choices about this third stage of life’.
