The first thing that the EveryWoman Expo brought to mind for me was Whitney Houston's voice singing I'm Every Woman in my head. We all are, aren't we? We're mothers, lovers, girlfriends, healers, secretaries and more; and sometimes we deserve a break from all that, just to remind ourselves, who we are. To let loose our inner goddess and child, and just be. To be for FREE is better still, and that's what it'll cost you to enter the EveryWoman Expo, nil, zilch, zero. However, you do need to REGISTER to secure your attendance. It's one free ticket per email address but you can also get a free ticket at the door. If you've never been to the Expo before, there's nothing like the present. Get the FAQ's here.
Running from Friday 21 to Sun 23 June 2019 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, 21 Mounts Bay Road, Perth, each day begins at 10am and runs till 8pm on the Friday, but only till 6pm on the Saturday and Sunday.
