Author and Broadcaster Andrea McLean, Olympian Michelle Griffith-Robinson, Campaigner and Author Meg Mathews, and Menopause Expert Dr Louise Newson are to headline a first-of-its-kind week-long festival to celebrate midlife women

‘The Midlife Festival’ (themidlifefestival.com), is an online, FREE festival bringing together more than 25 well-known speakers and experts, to share their knowledge, wisdom and top tips on how women can lead a healthier, happier and more positive life through their 40s, 50s and beyond.

It runs from 11- 15 October 2021 – to mark both Menopause Awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Festival has been created by The Latte Lounge – an online platform for women over 40, founded in 2016 by Katie Taylor after her own debilitating perimenopausal symptoms were misdiagnosed as depression. Forced to give up her career, she set out to ensure that no other woman would suffer in the same way that she did.

Katie says:

“We’re finally seeing a seismic shift in the narrative around what it means to be a woman in your 40s, 50s and beyond.

“For too long, midlife women have been made to feel invisible in society, have suffered in silence with often debilitating symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, whilst taking on their fair share of the ‘sandwich generation’ burden – juggling caring for children and ageing parents, while also trying to manage their work and home lives too.

‘“The Midlife Festival’ is about shining a spotlight on the woman in the middle, amplifying our voices, and celebrating all the positives that this next stage in our lives has to offer.”
