Womad is an acronym for World Of Music, Arts and Dance.

Started by Peter Gabriel and others to give world music a platform, WOMAD is now firmly established at locations around the world. For information on WOMAD events held outside the UK, click here.

The main UK event was held at Rivermead in Reading from 1990 until 2006, and moved to a new home at Charlton Park, near Malmesbury in Wiltshire in 2007. It's been held there annually ever since.
