“Hi! I want to let you know about an event this weekend – WoW Global 24.
What is it? Women of the World Festival – the first ever 24 hour online world festival. Starting Saturday 27th June 10.30am to Sunday 28th June 10.30am, it will include lots of events from around the world – UK, Australia, America, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Brazil – many different countries.
During those 24 hours, those events will consist of interviews, performances, panel discussions, music, various things.
What is the aim of this festival? To raise awareness of gender inequality and how women are still seeking equality. It aims to unite women and girls around the world. Also, the WoW Foundation are concerned about current events such as the impact of COVID-19 and racial injustice, with the need for an urgent response to collaborate, share ideas, and start a global movement for positive change.
These events have 6 different themes – education, justice, climate, health, economy, and violence. Women experience disproportionate oppression. We need to consider how to change this narrative.
This event, this festival, is really accessible, wow! It will have BSL interpretation from Saturday morning, 10.30am to Saturday night, 10.30pm – 12 hours in total. Also Sunday morning from 9-10.30am. This means a total of 13.5 hours of BSL interpreting access. There will also be full 24 hour access to captions.
This is a huge stride for accessibility. This festival is global, accessible, innovative. Hopefully you will find this exciting!

BSL Interpreted Event
BSL Interpreter – Daniel Roberts
Following the news that his sixth studio album, ‘Once Upon A Mind’, will be released on the 25 October, James Blunt announces a major 2020 UK and European tour including a show at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham.
After flirting with electronica on his last album, James Blunt returns to what he does best on new album ‘Once Upon A Mind’, writing classic songs that touch both the heart and the head. Highlights are many and include the breezy first single ‘Cold’, the poignant ballad ‘Monsters’, the pop swagger of ‘5 Miles’ and the country tinged ‘Halfway.’ There’s a warmth that permeates the entire album, and a real sense of personality.
James Blunt released his first album, ‘Back To Bedlam’ in the autumn of 2004 and soon after the single ‘You’re Beautiful’ became a global smash hit. He has sold over 23 million albums and has showcased his wit and charm more recently with his always engaging twitter account.View website Book tickets
