    WOW – Women of the World

    Southbank Centre's WOW – Women of the World festival is a global festival movement launched by Jude Kelly CBE in London in 2010 (with the first festival in March 2011) that celebrates women and girls, and looks at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential. To date, WOW has been in over 20 locations on five continents, including New York and Baltimore in the USA; Ake in Nigeria; Hargeisa in Somaliland; Alexandria in Egypt, Tampere in Finland, Beijing in China; Karachi in Pakistan, Kathmandu in Nepal, Dhaka in Bangladesh; Colombo in Sri Lanka; more than 10 locations in the UK including Bradford, Perth in Scotland and Cardiff; and across Australia in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and in Katherine. It has reached more than 1.5 million people worldwide and this number is growing year on year.

    Each festival across the world – made up of talks, debates, music, activism, mentoring, pop-ups and performance – celebrates women and girls, takes a frank look at what prevents them from achieving their potential, and raises awareness globally of the issues they face and possible solutions. It reaches girls and women, boys and men from a broad range of social backgrounds and supplies a completely different sense of action and energy than a conventional conference approach. Speakers have included Malala Yousafzai, Christine Lagarde, Angela Davis, Salma Hayek, Annie Lennox, Gordon Brown, Julie Walters, Patrick Stewart and many more including hundreds of women and men who don’t have public profiles but are working everyday to achieve gender equality. More than 25,000 people came to WOW London in 2017, thousands more have come to WOWs across the world and festival organisers have collaborated on cross-continental projects. For further information please visit wow.southbankcentre.co.uk

    Tickets for WOW are sold as one, two or three day passes. This will enable you to choose between a range of conversations, workshops, lunchtime performances and demonstrations, which will take place every day from 9am to 5pm. The first 200 people to purchase an early bird three day ticket will also be invited to attend a very special opening ceremony on Thursday 5 April. Early bird ticket buyers will also get access to a Hot Brown Honey presale available until Tuesday 5 December. Access to each day’s sessions will be on a first-come-first-in basis. The final times and venues for each session will be available online in early March.

    The Tivoli

    The flamboyantly eccentric troubadour returns to interpret his songs on a grand piano.  In this intimate performance, with his accent-thick vocals and dark, biographical lyrics, Patrick Wolf’s otherworldly stories will be hauntingly grounded. 

    The visually striking indie singer-songwriter hailing from South London is known for his confessional vocals and era-bending musical style.  A self-trained pianist, singer and producer,  Wolf is also a classically-trained violinist, harpist and composer, yet it is the imagination and ingenuity in his songwriting that have led to universal acclaim.

    Jimmy Barnes’ highly anticipated new memoir Working Class Man will be accompanied by a special national tour.

    Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories & Songs will be the sequel to the acclaimed and hugely successful live show Jimmy performed alongside his first bestselling memoir - Working Class Boy. Like that previous production, this new tour will see Jimmy telling his life story and singing stripped back versions of songs that have shaped his journey. However, unlike its predecessor, this live show - and book - will cover the Oz rock icon's entire adult life, revealing the successes and excesses of Australia's greatest rock ’n roll story.
