Live Stream, Performance & Special Event

Amazing Babes

Who was the person who shaped you? Gather once again for our special closing night as we’re joined by an incredible line-up of artists to honour the amazing babes in our lives – from the familial to the fictional and beyond. This will be an intimate night of storytelling and celebration about the babes who continue to inspire and uplift us.

Bring your own drink of choice for a toast to you and all the special ones that sow sunshine in our lives. Afterwards, be ready to dance from your own homes with us to send off EWF20 with a special bedroom DJ set!
