Festival of The Girl 2021

- My Brilliant Body

Sunday 10th October 2021

We are hugely excited to announce this year's Festival of The Girl will be on Sunday 10th October, 2021.  

Our theme this year is to change girls' perceptions of their bodies.  Celebrating them for what they do for us, rather than how they are seen by others.

From sports to body image, gaming to sign language, pre-puberty to body diversity, speaking up to understanding airbrushing, and so much more we are committed to showing girls that their bodies are brilliant in every way. 

 

We are creating a hybrid event: live and in person for a small group and our 'headline acts', live streamed on Sunday 10th October to all, and a pre-recorded set of interactive tents full of content so girls can enjoy the festival feel for longer.

 

Our 7 'tents' this year are:

My Brilliant Body: Thinks, Feels, Moves, Speaks, Works, Plays, Looks.

Sign up to our mailing list (bottom of page) to make sure you’re the first to know when you can sign up for this year’s festival.

We can't wait to see you there!

Festival of The Girl 2020

- Future World

Like everyone in 2020, we adapted and went online with our event. We created a bespoke child-safe virtual festival site with over 80 interactive videos and activities for girls and their families to enjoy. Every child who signed up received a Festival of The Girl journal and lanyard to help create the festival experience at home.

Young girls are our future change makers so through the Future World galaxy the girls could explore anything from STEM to mental health, sport global warming, and activism to architecture.

With more than 2000 girls signed up from all over the world, over 3300 plays of videos and 284 hours of content watched (that's nearly 12 days of footage in one day!) we were able to create a lasting impact in a tough year.

Festival of The Girl 2019

- Future Opportunities

 

We were thrilled to host our hugely successful inaugural festival on Saturday 5th October, 2019 in Tower Hamlets, celebrating the 200 girls (and boys) who came and took part.

 

With workshops, interactive stalls, Q&A’s and plenty of inspiring role models from The British Army to a professional pop group, we shaped our festival around the theme of 'Future Opportunities'.
