The Playhouse, Derry~Londonderry



WOW Derry-Londonderry is for everyone. If you are a woman or you know a woman, WOW will have something to offer you.

Originating in London's Southbank Centre, WOW Derry-Londonderry promises to bring fun, exciting and thought-provoking speakers and performers, from across the North West and further afield, to the festival.

Amongst many others we are especially delighted to welcome Sandi Toksvig, Baroness Helena Kennedy and Kathy Lette to WOW Derry- Londonderry this year.

The festival is run by the local women of the North West Women’s Collective (NWWC), who, in partnership with Southbank Centre in London, have created the very first and only WOW festival on the island of Ireland.

WOW Derry-Londonderry is part of an exciting growing global movement of WOW festivals, happening on 5 continents around the world. The festival is a brilliant and unique opportunity for women from all walks of life to gather, share, learn, celebrate and grow.

There will be an emphasis on building community at this year’s WOW Derry-Londonderry. The festival attracts diverse, inspiring, interesting and amazing people, so we’ve created a community room where festival attendees can relax, chat and forge connections with other like minded folk.

All genders, nationalities and ages are welcome to attend WOW and most WOW events are free of charge.
