womad2012 friday suzie-m-blake-4This year’s World of Music, Arts and Dance Festival (WOMAD) will be held from July 24 to 26. With a dedicated All Singing All Dancing Tent, and activities from a luxury spa to the vintage rides of Carter’s Original Steam Fair, it’s a feast of culture.

The music line-up is full of dance rhythms, from samba singer Dona Onete to tango orchestra Orquesta Tipica Fernández Fierro and electro-jazz dance group the Correspondents.

This year, the popular All Singing All Dancing Tent will include early-bird yoga sessions, sabar dance lessons, Japanese taiko drumming and more. To book tickets, visit or call 0118 960 6060.
