The Pause Festival

“What is The Pause Festival?” my husband asked.
“Like Afrika Burn”, I said. “But for women only. Older women.”
“Oh, Afrika Burnt Out?”
No! The Pause Festival will be a weekend-long celebratory event for us to meet, play, learn, move, grow, laugh, and have fun. And it will come to you on a sunny day in a beautiful field as soon as we can.
