WOW London Festival 2023

WOW London Festival returns for its 13th year! Join us from 10th-12th March 2023 at Southbank Centre

The Festival

The world’s biggest, most comprehensive festival celebrating women, girls and non-binary people is back!

WOW Festivals have now taken place in more than 30 locations across the globe on six continents. The 13th WOW London Festival is a chance to be part of the global movement and see world-class speakers, activists, musicians and comedians all in one place as we come together for three days of life-changing conversations, incredible performances and interactive workshops. Everyone is welcome.

In 2023 the famous WOW Day Pass returns on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Each day festival-goers can explore a totally different line-up of dozens of talks, workshops, performances, music and more. As each day will feature different events, you can book to come for one day or buy Day Passes for all three days.

There’s loads of free stuff to discover too, from the much-loved WOW Marketplace, WOW Pop Up performances and WOW Speed Mentoring.

Keep an eye out for more announcements in the coming months, including a line-up of separately ticketed evening talks, performances and more; family-friendly events and a digital programme.

At WOW, there’s space for discussions ranging from sex to politics, grandmotherdom to divorce, childlessness to career changes. It’s a chance for both the most difficult discussions and the funniest interactions that bring us all together.

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

WOW Festivals are presented by arrangement with Southbank Centre. Please note, WOW events will cover a variety of topics, some that may address sensitive or adult themes. We ask that parents/guardians use their discretion when attending with children under the age of 14.

Supported by The WOW Foundation's Global Founding Partner Bloomberg.
