The WI will be serving up cake to punk rock revellers at Loud Women Fest, 15 Sept in London

IMG_6313The ‘Ladies of the Lock’ Women’s Institute group will be baking up a storm to raise funds, but not a village fete or church hall in sight – these cakes will be sold at the feminist punk rock festival LOUD WOMEN Fest, happening Saturday 15th September at London’s The Dome!

The local WI group, which covers Tufnell Park, Camden and Kentish Town will be selling a range of cakes to help raise funds to keep their WI going. Revellers can enjoy their tasty treats while listening to live music by 20 of the UK’s most hotly-tipped punk and indie bands, fronted by women and non-binary musicians, such as Petrol Girls, Dream Nails, Ms. Mohammed, The Menstrual Cramps and She Makes War.

Festival organiser Cassie Fox said:

“Home baking from the WI is actual the perfect cherry on the cake of our festival – what says ‘feminist punk’ better than women working together to help raise their sisters up? The revolution will be powered by sugar!”

wiThe Ladies of the Lock group are no strangers to innovative, militant baking – last summer the group ran a project called ‘Grrr!’ inviting members of the public to come and paint political slogans on biscuits at a pop-up art gallery!

You can enjoy the WI’s baked goods, and the festival’s raucous music, on 15 September at The Dome – tickets from WeGotTickets
