At Asian Woman Festival, we're in the job of empowering women to take up space and be activists of their own future. We do this through using our culture, conversation and art to smash stereotypes, patriarchy and stigmas Asian women are often judged by.
Building on the success of hosting the UK’s first-ever Asian Woman Festival in March, where over 1000 people came together from the UK and internationally, and hosting our first London event in July - we’re delighted to be hosting our first event in Leeds with a sumptuous Afternoon Tea.
Guests will come together at our intimate setting to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea and we’ll facilitate a conversation that helps you to get more comfortable talking about topics you may not have space or opportunity to otherwise.
You’ll be able to connect with a like-minded group of people and have fun at the same time.
You'll have the opportunity to meet some of the Asian Women Festival team and experience the atmosphere and energy we create at our annual festival.
We ensure our Afternoon Tea remains an intimate affair with the opportunity to have a meaningful conversation and make new connections.
Please note - you must be over 18 years to attend.
