Thousands gather for WOMAD Festival

An international music festival is back in Malmesbury, serving up a platter of entertainment and culinary delights from around the world.

Boasting more than 70 artists from 35 countries, the three-day WOMAD festival is sure to be a hit with all music lovers. "I challenge anyone not to find something on the bill that inspires and moves them," said music legend and festival co-founder Peter Gabriel. "Musically this is one of the best festivals we’ve ever had."

WOMAD is also one of the only festivals that can truly be called a family event. An adult ticket will also allow two children entry free of charge. There are various activities organised exclusively for children including a reading library and a storytelling yurt.

Cookery enthusiasts can indulge in the festival’s ‘Taste the World’ cookery sessions or peruse more than 250 stalls, sampling international food or getting a drink from one of five bars. Families looking to catch some early sleep can rest easy as the festival offers family camping areas where a respectful and early-to-bed philosophy exists between families.

The WOMAD festival is already under way at Charlton Park in Malmesbury, but tickets are still available from the box office at special rates for the weekend. Two-day weekend tickets cost £100 and two-day family weekend tickets cost £175 (based on two adults and two children). Children under the age of 13 get free entry with an adult ticket. Camping is included in the price of the tickets.

Reduced ticket prices for SN16 residents are available for Sunday and cost £40.
