World of Words
Come to the World of Words to think, to talk, to laugh, to cry, to listen, to learn and to participate. The Literary linchpin of WOMAD provides countless knowledge nuggets for you to discover in the Arboretum.
The World of Words main tent will be a hive of activity all weekend. Just some of the highlights include WOMAD Book Club, panel discussions, talks and masterclasses. There is also a plethora of spoken word delights in the Hip Yak Poetry Shack and a world of people to discover in Human Books, not to mention a return of the Physics Pavilion where you can get hands on with workshops and hear about fascinating physics. Come and expand your mind.
