Join us for a weekend of laughter, joy, world-class speakers, artists and activists; all congregating as we look at the world we live in now.
Your Friday Day Pass gives you access to explore a packed day of talks, workshops and performances.
Opening the festival, Jude Kelly CBE is joined by Australia’s first female prime minister, Julia Gillard, activist and author Laura Bates, author Elif Shafak and activist Josephine Kamara to discuss women, misogyny and power.
Discover sessions taking place across our site covering the cost of living crisis, misscarriage, mental health, fat activism, whether you can be a feminist with fillers and loads more.
Speakers include Shani Dhanda, Megan Barton-Hanson, Stephanie Yeboah and Juno Dawson. DEWA (Deaf Ethnic Women’s Association) presents a Deaf-led session and we’ll celebrate global stories of resistance.
The building comes alive with pop-ups and performances, from double-dutch skipping to Krav Maga. Come and be spontaneous with us, hear new stories and make new friends.
It’s a joyful explosion of conversation and community, full of reasons to be enraged, enlightened and surprised.
Day passes are available for Saturday and Sunday too. Each day features a completely different line-up, so you can buy passes for multiple days, or just one.
