Summary

WOW Hull is a festival of talks, debates, music, film, comedy and activism that celebrates women and girls and takes a frank look at what stops them from achieving their potential. Based on the premise that an equal world is a better world for all of us, WOW is a celebration not only of women and girls but of equality in all its forms.

Taking place 10 – 12 Mar 2017, this action-packed weekend takes place throughout the city.  To enjoy the full weekend of activities you will need to purchase a WOW Day Pass but single tickets are available for some events. Day passes are valid for named days only (Saturday or Sunday). To enjoy the entire weekend you will need to purchase two separate day passes.

Our WOW Day Passes provide exclusive access to an incredible two days of events and activities, all which can be found in the WOW Programme [.pdf] and listed below. Your WOW Day Passes also entitles you to free or discounted tickets to events with limited capacity that require booking. A Saturday or Sunday WOW Day pass provides free or discounted tickets to events on Friday 10 March.

We’ve listed below those events for which your WOW Day Pass can be used to obtain free or discounted tickets. To obtain your free or discounted tickets, you will need to visit the Hull City Hall website to book these and use the promo code included on your eTicket (Print@Home) which you will receive after you’ve booked your WOW Day Pass.

Please Note: Free and/or discounted tickets are not valid unless accompanied by a valid WOW Day Pass. Day Pass holders will need to exchange their paper ticket for a wristband at the point of entry for their first event. Discounted ticket holders will also need to show their wristband for admittance to ticketed events.
