Come to the arboreal wonderland that is the arboretum to relax, learn and explore. Listen to debates on sustainability and enjoy beautiful music at the Ecotricity stage, discover and play instruments from around the world or head to Taste the World to watch your favourite performer cook food from their country interwoven with stories and music.

Alternatively if you want to get pampered, take a stroll through the World of Wellbeing and choose from a range of treatments from shiatsu to gong baths, or take part in one of the daily yoga classes or singing groups. There is also the possibility of discovering your inner child by scaling one of the massive Turkey Oak trees.

The World of Words will expand your mind with host of activities. Join us there to see panel discussions, talks and masterclasses and the WOMAD Book Club. The library will be open every day, swing by and check out a Human Book and the Hip Yak Poetry Shack will be in full swing with spoken word shenanigans.

The Arboretum is the spiritual home of WOMAD, explore this section to rejuvenate, learn and grow.
