WOMAD Charlton Park

Spring is in the air, the sun is shining and we are working hard to bring you a great WOMAD Charlton Park festival.

We’re enjoying your conversations on the forum, reading your dream line-up suggestions and comments on the event. It’s good for us to know what you think. We’re still working on some details of the line-up ourselves, but we will be able to announce the first selection of this year’s artists on March 18th. We can’t reveal any details at the moment but we promise it will be worth the wait.

If you enjoyed the delights of a relaxing Jacuzzi mid festival last year, you’ll love the return of the spa feature to WOMAD Charlton Park 2009. Come and be pampered by friendly staff, drink cocktails at the bar and relax in the Jacuzzis. You shall leave the spa looking like festival royalty!

As a special offer for 2009, buy a weekend ticket for the spa and get access to the WOMAD Charlton Park Backstage Bar.
