The Library was extremely popular with the press, though sadly we didn’t get the promised pic on the front of the Sunday Times!
We took a bit of time to wander around what is a gorgeous site well laid out and thoughtful in its construction. We found the Human Library which was quite busy (obviously a successful inclusion this year) so we didn’t have time to linger and take out a human book, plenty of folk obviously did though.
Safe Concerts review
There is also the rather curious “Human Library”, where instead of books you have people from all across the globe discussing their lives. I don’t quite understand the whole library angle, but the idea behind it sounds fascinating.

WOMAD maintains an evolving concept of how cultural understanding can be fostered, and this year brings many unique features.

To add to these stage performances there are plenty of other activities to keep everyone busy and entertained. The Human Library, Roots Architecture Workshops, Taste the World, The Global Market and more.
