WOMAD - World of Music, Arts and Dance the internationally established Festival, which brings together artists from all over the globe. The central aim of the WOMAD festival is to celebrate the world's many forms of music, arts and dance..
WOMAD festival is held at Charlton Park on the
26th-30th July 2018
WOMAD Festivals are family-oriented, diverse and active musical events; sometimes offering as many as seven stages within the festival site.
There are also participatory workshops, where the audience has a chance to meet and learn about the visiting artists and their music. Special events for children, including organised workshops and activities, create an experience both educational and entertaining.
Set in the historic grounds of Lord Suffolk’s Charlton Park in Wiltshire. The lay of the land allows those explorers a chance to explore, shade for relaxing and dozing, space to roam and potter, art installations to blossom, secret stages to pop up.
International music resonates throughout the grounds, bounces off trees in the Arboretum, whirls through the green arena and dashes across acres of beautiful grass land which becomes the camping grounds during the last weekend in July. It is truly a unique event and we suggest you come along and experience the beauty for yourself.
In the summer WOMAD signed a further 5 year contract with Lord Suffolk, so the festival will stay nestled in these grounds for years to come.
Kids go free!
Not only that, but there is also great children's workshops to keep them entertained, too.
