on 31 March 2016.

The indefatigable Lis Allen, Hungerford's very own pioneering personal development advocate, has announced some new dates for her wildly popular Vagina Dialogues event as well as the creation of her brand new, men-only forum, Talking Bollocks.

Talking Bollocks came about in response to demands that men should be able to enjoy the exploration of new ideas about relationships in a safe environment in the way that women were able to at the Vagina Dialogues events. vagina dialoguesWhilst Lis would never make the outlandish claim that she can offer men the keys to unlocking the secrets to womanhood - heaven forefend - she is confident that she can provide them with some valuable insights and help transform their relationships with women. And not just with partners or wives; Lis wants to help men explore the reasons they may feel confused, frustrated or afraid around all women, whether they be colleagues, daughters, mothers-in-law or sisters. Best of all, there will be no women present to interfere or tell men what they should be thinking: this is their unique opportunity to share honestly about the difficulties in their relationships in a relaxed and humorous format. Hats off to Lis for another pioneering idea.

Tickets for the event, which is scheduled for the 4th June in Hungerford Town Hall are available from

In the meantime Vagina Dialogues events continue apace. Lis struck a chord with women everywhere when she launched this event which examines the role of mothers and the profound affect they have on our lives and choices, often in ways of which we are only dimly aware. This part-presentation, part-discussion format has proved so popular that three more dates have been announced for the Spring.

28th April, Herongate Lesiure Centre, Hungerford, Berkshire

25th May, Sonning Golf Club, Berkshire

28th June, Mayfair London.

Tickets for all these events are available at
