WOMAD turns 25 in 2007! To help mark the 25th anniversary of our first event in Shepton Mallet we are launching WOMADstories.com, a new website.
WOMADstories.com hopes to gather your memories from the past 25 years of events. We want to capture some of the great moments of energy and excitement, the memories that stick with you from WOMAD over the years. We’re hoping to hear from people all around the world and discover the highlights of a quarter of a century of the World of Music, Arts and Dance – great music, amazing performances, sunny days, fantastic samosas, illuminating workshops, strange encounters – whatever your memory, we’d love you to share it.
We hope the website will bring together people who have experienced the WOMAD festival spirit in all of its locations around the world – so, please upload your story, add photographs, rate and comment on other WOMADstories. We really want to hear what WOMAD means to you, and sharing your memories will help us develop the WOMAD community around the world.
So get writing and send in your stories – the best one we receive before 30th June this year will win a pair of tickets to a WOMAD event of your choice anywhere in the world within the next year!
