WOW – WOMEN OF THE WORLD South Bank 8-9 March
In 2019, WOW presents an incredible line-up of events to mark the launch of The WOW Foundation and begin the countdown to 2020 – the 10th anniversary of WOW. The programme includes two very special conversations, including on Friday 8 March – International Women’s Day – with Angela Davis, and with Naomi Klein on Saturday 9 March, as well as two full afternoons: WOW: What Now? and WOW: What Next? led by Jude Kelly – and more. WOW has held 65 festivals in 5 continents over 30 locations in over 15 countries from Baltimore to Brazil, Cardiff to Karachi, and further across the UK, Australia and the USA, reaching over 2 million girls and women, and men and boys too. The WOW Foundation is an independent organisation working to build, convene and sustain a global movement that believes a gender equal world is possible and desirable through WOW festivals and empowering women and girls.
Entomb yourself London Bridge Experience
Plague pits, walls dripping with blood and other unspeakable horrors await you at the London Tombs, our city’s bone-chilling and maze-like catacombs. It bills itself as ‘the UK’s scariest attraction’, but don’t worry – there’s a child-friendly tour available that features all the scares without the actual horror of becostumed drama grads springing out to terrorise you.
The Ghost Bus Tours
It makes sense that a funeral bus would absorb some of the souls and spirits of its former passengers, so take care when you step aboard the Ghost Bus tour. Not only will it take you on a route around some of London’s darkest, dingiest corners but there are some added ghouls on board. It’s basically like a night bus to Dalston, only less psychologically scarring.
