Friday WOW Festival Day Pass

Latest events

Saturday WOW Festival Day Pass

This year WOW becomes a teenager, as the world’s biggest festival celebrating women, girls and non-binary people marks its 13th year! Join us for a weekend of laughter, joy, world-class speakers, artists and activists, all congregating as we look together at the world we live in now.

Your Friday Day Pass will give you access to explore a packed day of talks, workshops, performances, music from our WOW Sounds programme and more as we come together to celebrate achievements, and find solutions together on the pressing issues facing women, girls and non-binary people today.

Jude Kelly CBE will open the day pass with a powerful session on women, misogyny and power with Australia’s first female Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, activist and author Laura Bates and best selling author Elif Shafak and activist Josephine Kamara. They’ll be taking a global view on women’s rights and asking - what’s next?

We’ll be discussing a huge range of topics such as the sudden uptick in Bipolar Disease diagnoses and the Power Threat Framework. 75% of people diagnosed with BPD are women with the figures rising each year. In this fascinating session with psychologists Sanah Ahsan, Lucy Johnstone and Gilli Watson we ask if the uptick in diagnoses is due to sampling bias or are other factors at play?

On the topic of womens health, we’ll be talking about miscarriages and coping with baby loss burnout in a moving and supportive session with award winning journalist, Jennie Agg and debut author of a memoir, Adrift about her experiences with pregnancy loss, Miranda Ward.

We’ll be discussing what the cost of living crisis really means for women and disabled people who are already disproportionately affected by poverty with award winning speaker and activist Shani Dhanda.

In a light-hearted session featuring columnist, podcaster and TV personality Megan Barton-Hanson and other speakers to be announced, we ask if fillers are anti feminist or can you be feminist and get the odd tweakment? In another part of the building, Good Fatty / Bad Fatty invites fat activists Dr Charlotte Cooper, Stephanie Yeboah and Phoebe Patey-Ferguson to explore the intersections of fat identity that are too often left out of conversations on fatness.

Other talks with line ups to be announced will cover everything from leadership to stories of global resistance and the ‘feminism problem’ with some of the industry’s most respected speakers including Shahed Ezaydi, author of The Othered Woman: How White Feminism Harms Muslim Women.

A joyful explosion of conversation, community, reasons to be enraged, enlightened, and surprised. There’ll be big discussions trying to make sense of the world, big ideas proposing new ways forward, and chances to have silly fun too. Come and be spontaneous with us, hear new stories, and make new friends. More to be announced!

Many of the events in the day pass programme will be BSL Interpreted and/or Live Captioned.

Day passes are available for Saturday and Sunday too. Each day features a completely different line-up, so you can buy passes for both, or just one. A programme of ticketed and digital events will also be announced in the coming months.

Tickets for school groups are available for Friday's Day Pass. Find out more here.
