Set in a stunning 55 acre park and garden, Brooklands Park & the TSB Bowl in New Plymouth has gained a reputation as one of the most beautiful outdoor venues in the world and is again home to WOMAD 2008

The main stage is set at the base of a natural amphitheatre and not only provides a stunning setting, but an acoustic experience second to none. Other stages are located throughout the acres of Brooklands Park, with every square inch oozing the vibrancy of WOMAD, including the Global Village's food and art and craft stalls and workshop spaces. Even the Brooklands Zoo plays a part in hosting the colourful Kidzone area.

Workshops
Discover yourself! Take part in a workshop with many of the weekend's performers, explore your vocal range, dance to a different beat, be creative through visual art, or meet and be inspired by an artist.

Global Village
The Global Village is your chance to shop around the world! At the heart of the festival the Global Village is made up of more than 80 stalls trading a vast range of international food, beverages, arts and crafts.

Kidzone
WOMAD is a family-friendly festival and your kids will love our full programme of activities for lively young minds aged 5-12, all held within the wondrous surrounds of Brooklands Zoo.
