WILTSHIRE, UK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — WOMAD has announced that Charlton Park, in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside, will be the new home for WOMAD Festival in it's 25th anniversary year.
After announcing the move from Reading a few weeks ago, much speculation on the exact location took place and WOMAD decided to move the announcement forward and to put tickets on sale as of October 19th.
Set in a picturesque rural landscape, WOMAD at Charlton Park offers an opportunity to experience the festival in a truly green, pleasant and spacious environment.
"In this special 25th festival anniversary year we are creating a new rural vision and a new life for WOMAD in the United Kingdom. After all these years, Charlton Park is in many ways a fulfillment of our earliest dreams for the festival. WOMAD has always aimed to bring artists and audiences together in an atmosphere of delight, discovery and peace, and at Charlton Park we believe we have found the perfect place to achieve this… a unique cultural experience in a corner of the English countryside at its idyllic, bucolic best.” – said Thomas Brooman, WOMAD’s Artistic Director.
