Southbank Centre Artistic Director and WOW- Women of the World Founder, Jude Kelly said: “WOW – Women of the World Festivals are designed to be agents of change in their host cities, providing a space for women to participate in discussion, education and collaboration on the issues that most impact their lives. Launched in 2010 in London, WOW Festivals have engaged and inspired more than one and a half million women across five continents and cities in Australia, Egypt, India, Pakistan, the U.K., and at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem. WOW is the biggest gathering of women and girls across the globe, and I’m so pleased that Norwich is part of this story for change.”

WOW – Women of the World Norwich 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. These nine festivals are being funded by Spirit of 2012.

Norwich Arts Centre – Main Auditorium // Pay What You Can

True Stories Live is a lively, moving and unpredictable event where people tell true stories about their lives in front of a warm, supportive audience. There is no audition process or strict set of criteria – you just have to have a story to tell, based loosely on the set theme. Our speakers come from a wide range of different backgrounds. If you perform regularly in another context, you’re welcome. If you haven’t been on a stage since that incident in primary school, you are also very welcome. And if sharing your story isn’t for you, come down and join our fast-growing audience. We recommend you buy tickets in advance as the event usually sells out on the night. Regular events are priced on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis, because we don’t want money to be a barrier to people enjoying this event. In these uncertain times we believe more than ever in the power of community and empathy to galvanise and inspire.
