Womad Festival returns to Charlton Park this month
Date Posted: 06/07/12
The World of Music Arts and Dance (Womad) Festival is returning to its home at Charlton Park this month, bringing an array of acts together from across the globe to showcase their sounds in Wiltshire.
Fans of world music should book short breaks to the south-western county from Thursday, July 26th to Sunday, July 29th to see the eclectic mix of artists.
Senegal's Diabel Cissokho, Cape Verde's Michel Montrond, Canada's Genticorum, Niger's Abdallah Oumbadougou, the United Kingdom's Seth Lakeman and Azerbaijan's Nazaket Teymurova are just some of the exciting acts performing.
Beyond the music, there are endless activities to keep guests entertained. Guests can taste food from around the world, hear interesting stories straight from the horse's mouth at the human library or simply relax in the Womad spa, which features four therapy rooms, two Jacuzzis and a yurt sauna.
The festival, which was co-founded by Peter Gabriel, has been held on the grounds of Charlton Park Estate since 2007. Before that it was held in Reading, Berkshire for 20 years.
