WUKA Joins Forces with Bloody Good Period Ambassador Clara Amfo to Launch Inaugural Bloody Good Music
Headlined by Joy Crookes and with DJ sets from Clara Amfo & Friends, the event will raise funds for menstrual equity charity, Bloody Good Period, this October.
Sponsored by leading UK reusable period wear brand, WUKA, this inaugural event will raise much needed funds for period equality at a time when period poverty is becoming an ever more worrying reality in the UK. 100 percent of ticket proceeds will be going to Bloody Good Period.
Radio broadcaster, TV presenter and Bloody Good Period Ambassador, Clara Amfo, is working with WUKA as part of a joint mission to obliterate period shame, improve access to menstrual products for all, and just help everyone have a bloody good time!
Taking place at King’s Cross music venue, Lafayette, from 6pm until 1am, Bloody Good Music boasts a starry line up of bloody brilliant DJs, headlined – with an exclusive London performance – by Brit Award nominee, Joy Crookes.
“Equality, inclusivity, and social & environmental responsibility are at the heart of everything we do,” says WUKA Co-founder and CEO, Ruby Raut, “so as period poverty in the UK becomes a growing concern, we jumped at the chance to be involved in this fantastic initiative.
“Menstruation should never be a shameful or hidden experience, but celebrated as a natural and healthy part of life.
“WUKA is all about bringing periods into mainstream conversations, eliminating period shame and stigma, improving access to quality, sustainable period products, and celebrating and empowering the menstruating population. Clara and Bloody Good Period are undoubtedly tackling all of these issues with the Bloody Good Music event, and we are honoured to be able to support them in this shared mission.”
Clara Amfo, says: “I am so excited to bring Bloody Good Music to life with Bloody Good Period and WUKA.
“Accessible and affordable menstrual care for those who need it is an ongoing issue and has only been impacted further by the current cost of living crisis. Having to ration heating your home, feeding yourself and protecting your body properly during your period quite simply shouldn’t be happening.
“I’m so in awe of the Bloody Good Period team and all the work they have done thus far and am proud to be a new ambassador. I’m delighted that Joy, Tiffany, Arielle, Jaguar and Adam are sharing their time and talent for this special evening, and I look forward to the gig goers dancing and singing it up for Bloody Good Period and their vital work.”
Bloody Good Period CEO, Rachel Grocott, adds: “The impact of the cost-of-living crisis means that more and more people are having to make impossible choices between life’s essentials – and that includes period products. We’re meeting a level of demand that’s 150% higher than last year, so we’re bloody delighted that this incredible event and line-up will help us to ensure that more people have the bloody good periods they deserve.”
Priced at £25 per person, tickets are on sale from 10.30am, Thursday 6 October, and, and can be purchased via the WUKA website. Every ticket purchase will receive a £5 WUKA voucher to redeem against the brand’s full range of sustainable period wear.

Founded in 2017 by husband and wife team, Ruby Raut and Dave Slocombe, WUKA is the UK’s leading period wear brand and was the first in the UK to produce fully leak-proof reusable period underwear that completely replaces the need for pads and tampons. Just one pair of WUKA period pants can save 200 single-use plastic-riddled disposables from going to landfill or polluting our oceans.
WUKA stands for Wake Up Kick Ass; because nothing should hold women back when on their period. The brand strives to empower the menstruating population, improve access to quality, sustainable period products, eliminate period poverty, and remove period shame and stigma.
Offering a range of award-winning undies to suit different menstrual flows, WUKA period pants hold from two to six tampons worth of period blood; the highest absorbency of any other period products. They are also available in the most extensive range of sizes on the market – from XXS, right up to 6XL.
WUKA also offers period leggings, period sports shorts, period swim bikini briefs, and a number of period accessories and gifts, including a wearable hot water bottle, wash bags, period wellness sets, and starter kits for tweens and teens.
All WUKA products are mindfully created, using the highest quality planet-friendly fabrics, to be both great for the body and good for the environment. From the Better Cotton Initiative, Organic Certified, to Vegan, PETA approved and certified Carbon Neutral+, WUKA underwear is all accredited and designed with the future in mind. Equality, inclusivity, and social & environmental responsibility are at the heart of everything WUKA does.
WUKA is available in Morrisons, Superdrug, Planet Organic, Urban Outfitters, and a range of independent zero waste and fashion retailers. You can also purchase WUKA products direct from the WUKA website.

About Bloody Good Period
Bloody Good Period fights for menstrual equity and the rights of all people who bleed. Many refugees, people in the asylum system and those living in poverty simply cannot afford period products. People who menstruate suffer because of the culture of embarrassment and shame that exists around this natural, biological process. We don’t believe that anyone should be at a disadvantage just because they menstruate.
We give period products to those who can’t afford them, and provide menstrual education to those less likely to access it. And we help everybody talk about periods.
BGP has worked with more than 100 partners around the country, distributing essential period products via food banks, drop-in centres for refugees and asylum seekers, community organisations and family support groups. The charity was founded by Gabby Jahanshahi-Edlin six years ago, and in that time has distributed over 250,000 packs of menstrual supplies.
