WOMAD 2006
In July 2006 we made our first visit to WOMAD. The music and activities were great fun, and the food was as good as Glastonbury. However it was much smaller than other festivals I'd visited, with only one band on at once (although there were workshops too and stalls to explore). The sun came out and stayed out, and everyone was in a party mood - especially with such wonderful music!

The people and activities...

Clive Stafford Smith speaks on the injustices at Guantanamo Bay. Things are so ridiculous that it's almost funny.
