World of Music, Arts and Dance (WOMAD) is the internationally renowned festival that brings a selection of artists from around the world to Charlton Park.

The international music resonates throughout the grounds, bounces off the trees in the Arboretum, whirls through the green arena and dashes across acres of beautiful grass fields and camp grounds.

This festival for families, music lovers, foodies, artists and friends promotes an amazing sense of cultural awareness and tolerance. It truly is a wonderfully unique experience, full of incredible surprises.

What people are saying

“WOMAD have been coming to Charlton Park for nearly ten years and I think that without the support and expertise of the Estate team we probably not have made it to our second year.
Always helpful, brimming with ideas and solutions it has evolved into a genuine partnership. #farmerRobin has even become a legend on our Twitter feed!
We look forward to the next ten years at Charlton Park”

Chris, WOMAD

“In the warm blur of the summer festival season, this hardy celebration of music marginalised by the western pop machine still manages to stand out”
