Here’s your chance to be part of the first ever WOW – Women of the World Festival at LEEDS 2023.
We’ll celebrate women, girls and non-binary people with a day of talks, culture, rallies and events. There’s activities for the whole family to get involved in – from learning plumbing skills to visiting our WOW Marketplace. Check out the full line-up here.
Got a Big Idea? Share it here. We’ll all come together to swap thoughts on everything from housing and health to ageing and sport.
Ready for a day of joy, food, laughter, music and mayhem? Everyone is welcome.
The WOW Barn Festival follows a spectacular 24 hour barn build by 300 women and non-binary people. The entire site will be transformed into a festival full of talks, skills workshops, food, music and more. They’ll be something to see, do, watch or take part in all day long at Cinder Moor.
You’re invited to ‘sign up’ here. The WOW Barn Festival is Pay What You Decide. We want to include and involve as many people as possible, so you can choose to pay a price that works for you.
There’s an option to pay for additional sessions, through the Workshop Programme. Packed with chances to learn how to build your own spaces, we’ve got plumbing, drilling and you can build your own bird box in the shape of The WOW Barn.
We’ll end the day with a family friendly evening Barn Dance, stay and have a dance!
The WOW Barn is supported by West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City Council and delivered in partnership with Civic Engineers and Leeds College of Building. Original concept commissioned by UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK with funding from the UK Government.
