WOW Festival is back, and the WOW Marketplace returns ready for everyone to explore.
Inside the Royal Festival Hall, this dynamic indoor Marketplace is curated by WOW to showcase diverse women and non-binary-led businesses and activist organisations.
WOW festivals celebrate women, girls, and non-binary people, and take a frank look at the obstacles they face across the world. A riot of colour, community and mind-expanding conversation, there’s space for everything at WOW festivals, from the most challenging discussions to workshops that have you in fits of laughter.
Free to the public, WOW Marketplace stallholders including Janet's List, Tatty Devine, Path Financial and University of London will sell sustainable homeware, clothing and jewelry, showcase talent and offer demonstrations.
Throughout the weekend, visitors can learn to mix music on Omnii Collective's decks, listen to vinyl records with Shrubs and Dubs, learn to manage money with Women's Budget Group, practice plant repotting with L'Appartement, experience indigenous healing arts with Black Mind; write a thank you card with Pushing Envelopes; and get books signed at Foyles.
Charities including Level Up LDN, Global Girl Project, Women's Environmental Network and Migrant's Organise will be engaging visitors on a range of feminist issues that affect us all, such as the climate crisis, mental health, global education for girls, and, of course, gender equality.
Samaritans will also be on hand to offer in-person support and mental health services.
