WOMAD have announced they're unable to put on this year's event

WOMAD have announced they're unable to put on this year's event.

The festival was set to take place at Charlton Park from 23rd–26th July, but it's been pulled following a meeting with the Licensing authority owing to COVID 19.

WOMAD Founder Peter Gabriel says: “Like many others, we have been hoping, waiting and watching the Coronavirus situation. Finally, we have been told that we will not be allowed to hold WOMAD this year at Charlton Park. Safety for all of our festivalgoers, artists and our own staff surpasses everything.

"All of us involved with WOMAD have already been really touched by the help and generous offers of many of those we depend on to make the festival come to life. Many of the artists have already offered, or agreed, to play for us next year and we will now put our energies into making a great WOMAD 2021. We hope to see you all at Charlton Park next year for a big celebration, when we’ve put this meanie back in the bottle.

"Your love and support for the dream that is WOMAD, has always meant a lot to us, but especially now. Thank you and stay safe.”

Planning for WOMAD 2021 is already underway.
