  • BSL Interpreted Event-   Part of WOW – Women of the World

    Consider the ideas that matter to women in an event led by Jude Kelly, founder of WOW – Women of the World.

    From the toughest realities many women and girls face every day, to the greatest triumphs, we present an afternoon of stories and performances designed to blow your mind and change your world view, featuring some of the best speakers, performers, activists and thinkers in the field.

    Since 2011, thousands of people have come to WOW – Women of the World festival across six continents. Sixty festivals, millions of conversations and loads of change later, here is what women from Cardiff to Karachi, Bradford to Baltimore and Australia to the Americas care about most.

    We look at violence, money, motherhood, and what it means to live your life with a double whammy of sexism and racism, disability, or homophobia.

    There are stories about friendship, love, pain, anger, joy and grief, and confusion about fitting into a world that is changing very quickly in its politics, technology and cultural norms.

    WOW – Women of the World festival is a global movement founded by Jude Kelly at Southbank Centre in 2010, celebrating women and girls and looking at the obstacles that stop them from achieving their potential.

    The Strictly Come Dancing UK Arena Tour is waltzing back on the road next year for 29 supersized sequin-filled shows across the country. Fans will be delighted to hear that Strictly favourite and 2017 TV show winner Ore Oduba will be hosting the tour for a second time.

    The 2019 tour will be directed once again by the FAB-U-LOUS Strictly TV Judge Craig Revel Horwood and feature many of the celebrities and professional dancers from the highly anticipated 16th series of the award-winning BBC One show. Further casting announcements will be made over the coming months.

    Arena audiences are in for a real treat, as they enjoy a fantastic evening of entertainment, showcasing all the amazing choreography and incredible live music that Strictly is famous for. They will experience a host of breathtaking dance routines guaranteed to leave them spellbound, together with all the glitz, glamour and magic of the TV show live on stage – this is a must-see spectacle for fans of all ages.

    Ore Oduba said: “Goes without saying, I’m so excited to be back hosting the Tour again! As many people know, Strictly means a lot to me so to be back with the gang…well, let’s just say it didn’t take long for me to say ‘yes’! I had the best time hosting the 2018 tour, the Strictly fans were as loud and excitable as ever. And I’m sure 2019 will be no different, we’ve got a sensational show planned. And yes – when we hit the road in January – I will be packing my dancing shoes!”

    As well as enjoying the glittering routines, arena audiences have the power to decide who wins the coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show. After each celebrity couple has performed, the tour judges will provide their invaluable critique and scores – but the audience can also vote via text for the favourite couple and ultimately they will decide who wins!
