WOW Three Day Pass

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Be inspired by discussions on topics that matter to women and girls over three days at WOW festival.

The WOW Three Day Pass brings you all the most up-to-date and relevant talks, debates, workshops and practical tips on everything from sex and politics to fashion and race, and what globalisation, Trump and Brexit mean for women and girls.

WOW Friday has a special focus on business and the world of work, with topics covering leadership, confidence, childcare, the benefit system and much more.

Throughout the weekend hear from leading thinkers and world-class speakers, alongside new voices from women and girls who are changing the world. This is a time when female voices have become immensely powerful across the globe as a force for positive change.

Come and have your say at WOW - debate the questions and discuss solutions.

In 2017, Southbank Centre celebrates the Nordic nations, and at WOW we explore what we can learn from these countries that consistently top the gender equality indexes. Learn more about how the Nordics have prioritised gender equality and the impact that has had, and consider what other countries are missing out on.

WOW also includes free events like our popular WOW speed mentoring and the WOW Market with ideas and products to fill your mind and shopping basket. There is also music, performance and networking opportunities.

A number of events are British Sign Language-interpreted and Speech-To-Text transcribed. Details will be confirmed in January 2017.

WOW – Women of the World is Southbank Centre's festival celebrating women and girls, and looking at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential. It was founded by Jude Kelly at Southbank Centre in London and takes place all over the world from Pakistan to Finland, Katherine in the Australian outback to New York City. This is the seventh WOW festival in London.
