DAVE Pickering, a professional story teller, will be leading an event at Railway in Winchester this Sunday talking the male perspective of the patriarchy, toxic masculinity and what men really think about it.

Dave will take you through a personal journey on gender as he tries to explain masculinity to both you and himself.

A regular podcaster, Dave’s Getting Better Acquainted won a British podcast award in 2017 and featured on BBC Radio 4’s Pod We Trust and BBC Radio 5 Lives Required Listening.

In this talk, after drawing on an anonymous survey of 1000 men, feminist theory, internet memes and his life experience, Dave will explain the conclusions he has come to after 36 years of trying to make peace with being a man.

The talk will last for 1 hour and will be followed by a Q&A. Tickets for the event are on sale for £8.
