Women of the World Festival

Women of the World Festival

In the words of Jude Kelly, the festival founder, "Has there ever been a more exciting time of change for girls and women? There’s so much to celebrate and so much to improve and it needs everyone to be involved."

"WOW Perth 2018 is our 50th festival, and we’re proud to celebrate this with the people of Perthshire and beyond. Scotland has been a major force for women’s empowerment and it’s important that the conversations, awareness and activism that WOW facilitates take place in smaller communities as well as major cities."

Once again #WOWPerth is the only Scottish event, and it is set to be a belter! Do check out our top 5 picks from this years programme here or download the full brochure for all the details here >>>

Celebrating and recognising the achievements of women and girls as well as taking a frank look at factors stopping them from achieving their potential, WOW is a jam-packed festival weekend including talks and debates from top speakers, music, dance, theatre, performance, poetry and comedy as well as wide-ranging workshops and activities ranging from morning song to yoga, and speed mentoring to skateboarding.

Funded by Spirit of 2012, WOW - Women of the World Perth 2018 is part of Southbank Centre’s expansion of its global WOW network of festivals to create nine new WOWs in five cities across the UK to mark the centenary of female suffrage in 2018. Perth is the only Scottish city to host one of these WOWs.
