I was a Festival Virgin……..

…….but no more! I have spent the last few days at WOMAD in Wiltshire and found my spiritual home! To begin the days with singing in harmony, to end the days with dancing, in the rain or in the evening sunshine, to fill the hours in between with music from all over the world, with food from all over the world, to be with some of the people one loves the most and surrounded by happy, like-minded strangers – well, what more could one ask for?  Honestly? Only to have the rest of the family there too!

Why have I not been to music festivals before? I can’t really answer that question. I have always wanted to and now, at last, I have and I have loved every single minute of the four days.  I’m already looking to book for next year!

Let me take you on a visual journey through the Festival. I’m just sorry I can’t bring you the music. Here are a few photos from our first impressions on Thursday evening – colour, inventiveness, children, happiness, parched grass, music……

More tomorrow.
