Do you know someone who’s making a difference in your community? Someone who works tirelessly to make the lives of women, girls and non-binary people better? Someone who deserves a moment in the spotlight to be thanked and to bring their work to wider attention?

WOW - Women of the World is about to embark on a UK tour to do just this - and we want to hear from you. Nominations are now open for you or your local hero to appear live on stage at The WOW Show with Jude Kelly at one of five locations across the UK this October.

This autumn we’re off on tour with a brand new show at Chipping Norton Theatre (10 October), The Exchange Twickenham (11 October), Brighton Dome Studio Theatre (12 October), York Theatre Royal (13 October) and St George’s Hall in Bradford (16 October). We’re looking for one amazing person per venue to be interviewed on stage by Jude, alongside a line-up of other incredible speakers and performers.

Who is eligible?

Nominees must have a connection to Chipping Norton, Twickenham, Brighton, York or Bradford, for example live, work or be from there. You can nominate someone you know or yourself, and nominees can be any gender.

We want to hear about people who are doing amazing things to support women, girls and non-binary people. It could be that they work for an outstanding local charity or are an unsung hero in the community. Maybe they are a carer, the coach of your local girls football team or run a small business or community group changing the lives of others. Whatever it is, we want to hear about them and tell their story as part of the tour.

To be eligible, the nominee must be over the age of 18, be UK based and live, work or be from the local area of your chosen date in the tour.

The winners will be celebrated on stage to appear as part of The WOW Show with Jude Kelly, and receive two additional complimentary tickets to the event. More details about the show can be found here.

How do I submit my nomination?

All entries must be submitted via the form below. You can either choose to write about your chosen nominee or submit a short video. Entries must be received by 5pm on 2 September.

The WOW team will then pick the winning nominees who will be invited to appear on stage on the night, as well as have their work or story shouted about on WOW’s digital platforms. They’ll join an esteemed group of WOW speakers from around the world.
