2020 Programme

Welcome to the Audacious Women Festival 2020 offering wonderful opportunities to Do What You Always Wish You Dared.
The Festival is unfunded so ticket sales have to cover all our costs including fair fees for our event leaders.
For most of our workshops we have three ticket prices - Standard, Concession (so the Festival is accessible to women on very low incomes) and Supporter (which includes a £10 donation).
Please choose which ticket to buy according to your circumstances - we will not ask for any proof, we only ask that you are honest.
