WOMAD is a feast of culture. Apart from experiencing the hottest musicians and inspiring new talent from around the world there is always much more to discover. And with children 13 years and under FREE, bring the whole family to the feast.

The sights and smells of amazing food from around the world greet you at the Global Market. Shop for foodie delights and global gifts or simply enjoy the vintage rides at Carters Steam Fair. Look out for shared morsels and insights into the world of some of our artists at the Taste the World stage.

The All Singing All Dancing Tent welcomes you with everything from yoga to Sabar dance lessons. In World Rhythms drum to your hearts content and hear the inspirational stories of the the world’s best.

In the arboretum, the World of Wellbeing offers an oasis of treatments, therapies, discussions, workshops and spaces to get away from the bustle of the main arena. And for those who fancy adding some luxury to your festival experience there is the WOMAD Spa or the increasingly popular La Di Da Loos.

WOMAD’s World of Art sees artists use the festival site as a giant canvas and the World of Words brings poetry, human books and debate to the festival.

The dedicated kids zone World of Children will be bursting with things to see, hear and do and culminates in the¬†Children’s Parade on Sunday, one of the festival highlights.
