Festival of The Girl is a not-for-profit initiative that aims to inspire and educate girls aged between

7 and 11 years through one day family festivals.

Festival of The Girl is an event that takes place in October, in celebration of International Day of The Girl, and is an interactive hub of education, resources and role models.  Through a range of speakers, workshops and activities Festival of The Girl explores key topics including body positivity, physical and mental health and careers.  It is designed for, but not limited to, girls aged 7 to 11 years old. 

The festival also supports parents and carers to raise their girls in a less stereotyped way. 

Festival of The Girl 2020

is going ONLINE!

Future World

Our vision this year is to enable more girls and their families to celebrate International Day of The Girl on

Sunday 11th October.  We will do this by sharing content that inspires girls and parents/carers alike and providing engaging online events on the day itself. 


Our theme this year, given how 2020 has played out so far and being that girls are our future change makers,

is ‘Future World’.  We will be celebrating how girls can create an equal, exciting and inspiring future.

Festival of The Girl 2019

Our inaugural event

We are thrilled to have hosted our first festival on Saturday 5th October in Tower Hamlets 

celebrating all the incredible girls, and boys, who came and took part. 

It was a huge success and we are so grateful to all those who made it such an exciting, inspiring and fun day. 

The future is hers

“It’s simple, you can’t be what you can’t see.  So let’s surround our girls with inspiring role models and empower them to confidently create a future of equal opportunity, a future where a woman’s worth is not judged by her appearance, a future where they feel safe.  The future is theirs.”

- Abi Wright, Festival of The Girl CEO and co-founder
