Womad

Womad Festival

An evening of music from around the world will be staged at Bristol Zoo Gardens this summer as it teams up with the Womad festival for a unique concert.

Visitors will be able to step into a world of music, arts and dance at the event which takes place on Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 6pm, within the Zoo’s 12-acre grounds.

The mini-festival is part of a series of events at the Zoo this year to celebrate its 175th birthday.

Tickets are now available for Womad at Bristol Zoo, with discounts for those who buy in advance. To find out more visit the Zoo website at http://www.bristolzoo.org.uk/womad-at-bristol-zoo-a-wild-night-of-world-music

Womad — World of Music, Arts and Dance — is an internationally established festival which brings together artists from all over the globe.

Rebecca Jones, Womad event organiser, said: “The central aim of the festival is to celebrate the many forms of music, art and dance from around the world, and Bristol Zoo is home to wildlife from across the globe, so it is the perfect setting for what is sure to be a fantastic event.

“Bristol Zoo celebrates a landmark birthday this year and we are pleased to be teaming up with an organisation that has achieved so much for the animal kingdom over the years. Saving over 175 species from extinction and establishing over 30 field conservation and research programmes all over the world really does deserve recognition.

“As well as offering visitors a great evening out, Womad at Bristol Zoo will also help raise money for charity – all profits made, once those basic bills have been paid, will be donated to Ape Action Africa — a charity that helps orphaned and injured gorillas and chimpanzees in Cameroon.”

Visitors to WOMAD at Bristol Zoo will be able to enjoy two stages offering a variety of world music, as well as children’s workshops, stalls, and entertainment. Visitors can also visit a host of different animal species at home in the Zoo, as some of the Zoo’s animal houses will be kept open late.

Advance tickets for Womad at Bristol Zoo cost £20 (adult) and £5 (child) or £45 for a family ticket. Under 3s are free. Further discounts apply for Zoo members who book in advance.
