Latitude Festival and ActionAid have been working together for six years to inspire festival goers to stand up for the rights of women and girls around the world. This year amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re launching ‘Stand Up with Women’, which will be Latitude’s first ever online event.
In an effort to beat the January blues and bring the nation some much-needed laughter, the one and only Jo Brand will be hosting the event on Thursday 21 January. There’ll also be performances from the fabulous Rosie Jones, Shazia Mirza and Kelly Convey, and a set from global comedy star Lepacious Bose in Nigeria. Queen of Ghanaian comedy Heiress Jacinta and brilliant impressionist Jan Ravens have just been added to complete the line up.
Money raised from ‘Stand Up with Women’ will go to support ActionAid’s vital work in over 40 countries, helping to end violence and fight poverty so that all women, everywhere, can create the future they want.
