World of Children

Not only are children 13 and under free at WOMAD, but they also get a huge area dedicated to them so that they can explore, create, learn, play, and have the best time. The World of Children runs from 9am to 7pm each day and all of the hundreds of activities are absolutely free.

There are two large tents bursting with all manner of creative projects, and it’s also where kids can get involved in creating large-scale processional structures and costumes and headdresses, so they can take part in the big family parade on Sunday.  This year our theme was INSECTS which meant that lots of beautiful butterflies, scary scorpions, delightful dragonflies and whatever their imaginations come up with were made at each activity.

The World of Children is also home to WOMAD Weenies for under 5’s, the Teen Tent, the Happening Tent, a music caravan and a storytelling tepee.  They can get stuck into everything from slacklining, circus skills and den building, to woodland walks, music making and family Zumba!
