Leading nutritionist Dr Marilyn Glenville will talk about balancing hormones to help eliminate mood swings, improve memory and reduce stress. “I’m really looking forward to taking part, it’s wonderful to have an event like this taking place locally,” she said.

The day begins at 7am with a business networking breakfast hosted by Bev James, an author and also Chief Executive of The Coaching Academy, which trains sports coaches.

From 3-4pm, the over-60s are invited to go along to a free ‘OAP get together’ with tea and cake.

And after school, from 4.30pm, there will be a make-up workshop for girls aged 15 to 20 with Emilie Walkden, a certified MAC artist who runs an academy in Uckfield.

Emilie said: “I’m excited to take part in the International Women’s Day event as I would like to help and educate teenagers with their make-up.

MAKE BELIEVE: Emilie Walkden believes make-up can be ‘as creative as you like’

“Make-up is exciting and you can be as creative as you like. My masterclass is going to open the door for young people to feel their best. I can’t wait to be a part of their journey.”

Throughout the day there will be a beauty salon offered by Tipz N Toez with a nail bar, mini facials, eyebrow shaping and Indian head massage.
