More go mad for Womad

THE WOMAD festival could be even bigger from next year after the organisers were granted a licence to sell 41,500 tickets.

Although the move released only an extra 2,000 tickets on general sale for this month's event, there is now scope for the festival at Rivermead to attract thousands more visitors next year.

Reading Borough Council approved the extra tickets without argument after a number of anticipated objections were withdrawn at the last minute.

Thousands of festival goers will flock to WOMAD next week (July 28-30) and organisers hope to attract an extra 10,000 ticket hold-ers including nearly 8,000 staff, traders and artists tickets on top of last year's 19,300 festival-goers.

WOMAD - The World Music Arts and Dance Festival in Richfield Avenue is returning to Reading for its 24th year and work has been taking place at Rivermead to get the site reading.

More than 70 artists from 30 countries will be performing at the festival inspired by Peter Gabriel.
