The original furry eco-warriors from Wimbledon Common are back with an abundance of album releases and their debut appearance at Glastonbury. All four of their gold-achieving albums plus the soundtrack to the 1977 film ‘Wombling Free’ will be released by Dramatico Records on June 20th prior to their peformance on the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury on June 26th.

‘Wombling Songs’
‘Remember You’re A Womble’
‘Keep On Wombling’
‘Super Wombling’
‘Wombling Free’ – the Original Soundtrack

Be prepared to (re)capture the innocence of youth with this unparalleled collection of immaculate pop on which The Wombles’ perform an eclectic range of music including blues, country, folk, barbershop harmonies, glam rock, military brass and classical.

Starting from a single song, ‘The Wombling Song’ written by Mike Batt for the TV series, The Wombles pop group became a phenomenon in pop history. In 1975 The Wombles received the Music Week magazine award for the “best selling singles group” beating Slade, The Bay City Rollers and many other chart favourites of the time. In total, The Wombles have had 8 Top 30 hits in the UK and 1 top 50 hit in the USA.

The band, who regularly appeared on Top of the Pops wearing costumes made by Batt’s mother Elaine, now reunite for what promises to be a highlight of this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Band members:
Orinoco – lead vocals and sax
Wellington – lead guitar
Madame Cholet – bass guitar
Bungo – drums
Great Uncle Bulgaria – violin & percussion
