WOMAD fans set for mud fest

WOMAD festival organisers are warning festival-goers to come prepared for the wet weather. After two days of heavy rain immediately before the start of the event today, the condition of the festival site at Charlton Park near Malmesbury has deteriorated. People coming in cars are being advised to attach a tow eye to their vehicles if they have one, just in case they need to be hauled out of the mud.

A festival spokesman said: "Please come prepared for wet weather and mud, and bring plenty of warm and waterproof clothing, and waterproof items to transport your belongings in. The site has not been affected too badly by the flooding as it has a clay soil on limestone brash and is on high ground, allowing efficient drainage, but better tot take precautions. Wellies are crucial but the vibe is good!"

The World of Music and Dance festival began last night at Charlton Park with performances from Malmesbury schools and The Blind Men of Alabama. There was traffic chaos in the area as thousands queued to gain access to the festival site but now thet are inside the atmosphere is relaxed and visitors are looking forward to the fun. Tonight there is music from Daara J, from Senegal, The Black Eagles, from Tanzania and the Tiago Gambogi Workshop, from Brazil. Festival founder and Box resident Peter Gabriel is also headlining tonight, his first performance for many years, at 9.30pm in the Open Air Stage.
