Tomorrow’s Warriors boss, Janine Irons MBE is a big fan of WOW:

“As an organisation with a particular focus on girls, women and musicians from BAME backgrounds, we love WOW, as it represents a major opportunity for our female musicians in particular to take some of the spotlight. It’s also a great honour to work with such a diverse group of award-winning female artists in this year’s Festival, and a huge treat, of course, to work again with Eska, a Tomorrow’s Warriors alumna. I’m loving seeing members of the Tomorrow’s Warriors Female Collective making their mark on the festival, both as performers and as composers, and would urge you to come to WOW and check them out while they have the spotlight, as there’s a lot of remarkable talent out there you really shouldn’t miss!”
