Hosted by UAL Post-Grad Community, MENSTRual is a 2-day student-led event programme aiming to celebrate and raise awareness of the environmenstrual movement. Browse stalls, listen to period empowered talks, get educated on eco-menstrual solutions, take part in a pad-making workshop or just come along for a free bloody goodie bag! 

Did you know people who menstruate use more than 11,000 disposable menstrual products

in their lifetime?!

We want to help to break the Period taboo while introducing sustainable, affordable, environmentally friendly alternatives to mainstream period products.


Day One 

An afternoon of postgraduate student talks and shares in RHS West Space, at London College of Fashion. A showcase of inspiring students will be followed by a film screening on the internationally acclaimed film PAD MAN (watch the official YouTube trailer).


Day Two  

From 12noon we’ll be taking over The Street at Central Saint Martins. Join Post-Grad Community for a workshop to make your own sanitary towels. Make your own period tracking bracelet with The Rights Studio. Talk Periods with charity Bloody Good Period who provide Menstrual supplies for asylum seekers and refugees. Explore reusable sanitary products with specialist ethical retailer ECO Dreams offering earth conscious alternatives to pads and tampons. 


Don’t miss your chance to collect a MenstrUAL bloody goodie bag or enter our Bloody Raffle for amazing menstruation themed prizes.
