The amazing WOMAD festival returns this year to Charlton Park in Malmesbury (26 - 29 July). It’s one of the most mind-blowing festivals you’ll ever go to – nowhere else will you see musicians from Belgium to Brazil and a host of countries in between. It really is like travelling around the world in music.

We spoke to Faye from Green&Blue, who told us all about them.
On 16 March, 200 people gathered from around the country for a ‘Jig at the Rig’ in support of local protestors resisting Cuadrilla’s fracking operations at Preston New Road. Organised by Reclaim the Power, the all-day shut down of the fracking site featured live music, poetry and a dance-off in the tracks of Lancashire’s drilling trucks, right outside the gate.
Winter may be officially over, but the cold weather doesn’t seem to agree. Repeated attacks by the ‘Beast from the East’ have seen many of us cranking up our gas-fired heating systems. And with a potential third beastly attack of the cold due soon, many people might be concerned about the impact all this heating may have on their energy bills.
