World of Children – WOMAD 2022

Posted on 30 March 2022

It’s time to party for 40 years of WOMAD, and this year’s theme in the World of Children is… Celebration!

We’re painting the World of Children ruby red in honour of this big anniversary. Our wonderful teams of artists have all sorts of activities lined up to involve everyone from 2 – 16 years of age. You can expect an extra special WOMAD procession, workshops, storytelling, crafts, circus skills, t-shirt printing, painting, DJ mixing, enormous puppets, woodland adventures, costumes and crowns, dancing, singing, film making and load more at WOMAD this year.

WOMAD is a one-of-a-kind festival for families and we know how much children love to run free. Every child is welcome at WOMAD and encouraged to get involved in the many exciting activities lined up in the World of Children. We find that parents don’t like to stand on the sidelines for too long – there’s so much to join in with! There are over 200 free activities for children available across the weekend, and you can find out all the information on the WOMAD app, which will be free to download before the festival.  So, come and celebrate with us!


Children under 13 go free – however, they still need a ticket so please add one to your order when you buy one.

Teenage 3-Day = £105 / Teenage 4-Day = £145 – Teenagers are aged 14-17 years and need to be accompanied by an adult with a guardian form filled in. Please see our tickets pages for all information regarding teenage tickets.
