WOMAD’s UK home is in Charlton Park, Wiltshire, where every year, during the last weekend of July, you’ll discover a world without borders, a global fiesta of music, food, dance & art, and a place where everyone is welcome. Our first festival took place in 1982, and since then we’ve taken the party to over 27 countries and held over 250 festivals. We’re currently in Australia, Caceres, Chile, Las Palmas, New Zealand, and of course the UK, so join our global community and celebrate the world on your doorstep.
