More than 30,000 people are expected at Charlton Park near Malmesbury for this year's WOMAD. The festival, which has been running since 1982, celebrates music, arts and dance from around the world.

The weather hasn't been great so far but Bob Crampton will bring you the forecast from the site in Wiltshire, so we hope it won't be too wet.

You can watch - and hopefully hear some great music - on ITV West at 6pm.
