Festival of The Girl 2024

 

Now in our 6th year, we will be returning to the Business Design Centre Islington in North London on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October.

We believe in a world where gender stereotypes 
no longer limit kids' potential

With accessible global festivals and campaigns Festival of The Girl was created to empower millions of young girls to breakdown stereotypes with confidence,
while equipping parents and carers with the tools to guide them.

Festival of The Girl 2024

 

Our flagship festival, happening this October, is packed with workshops and activities aimed at engaging, entertaining, educating and opening the minds of our 7-11 year old girls. This year's line-up will be announced soon, but rest assured your girls will experience everything from coding to art, sports to periods, experiments to activism, engineering to body confidence, friendships to sustainability and so much more!

For a taste of what to expect take a look at this short video from last year's event.

IMPACT

We exist because we want to change what it means to be a girl.

We want to remove the limitations gender stereotypes place on girls.  And we want to start this conversation with primary school aged kids, and their grown-ups.

We've created global interactive events, campaigns and resources to give girls and their families access to incredible female role models, workshops and activities.  

Our headline festivals and pop-ups take place every October coinciding with UN's International Day of the Girl Child.  All our events are safe environments for girls to have fun, try something new, and most importantly; leave with a boost of self confidence.

INCLUSIVITY STATEMENT

Festival of The Girl is committed to advancing equality and promoting inclusivity for all young people, regardless of their identity or gender expression.

 

We are passionate about inspiring girls to believe in their futures and the programme is designed to provide female role models for young people. We believe challenging gender stereotypes and breaking down barriers to inclusion benefits young people of any gender.

 

While we use the term “girl” to address the barriers that girls face at a young age, our mission is inclusive of trans and non-binary communities, and we encourage young people of any gender to take part.
