Celebrating all the women of the world that just make you go 'wow!', the WoW Festival 2014 is a weekend of inspiring talks, workshops, performance, and big ideas.

A three-day pass covering the 7th-9th of March is £30; alternatively you can also buy tickets to individual events, all of which take place at the Southbank centre.

WoW is for everyone - boys and girls, women and men - anyone who thinks the accomplishments of women are worth celebrating. Topics will include everything from politics and power to fashion and science.

As a warm up to the weekend, Thursday the 6th March will be hosting an appearance from the Vincent Dance Theatre Company, who are currently on their Motherland Tour . The show is a powerful dance performance exploring gender identity. Inspired by the social theorist, Simone de Beauvoir, British broadcaster, Caitlin Moran, and girl power pop band, The Spice Girls, Motherland criticises the narrow-minded outlook and over-sexualized definition of femininity.

On the 7th March, you will be able to listen to an exceptional literary array as the five female poet laureates from the UK and Northern Ireland gather for the fist time. Join Carol Ann Duffy (England), Liz Lochhead (Scotland), Gillian Clarke (Wales), Paula Meehan (Ireland), and Sinead Morrisey (Northern Ireland).

There are still more events to be announced, and although the list of guest speakers has yet to be confirmed, last year's festival included Julie Walters, Gordon Brown, Ruby Wax, and the father of Malala Yousafza.
