Last night, at the Roundhouse in London, Peter was awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Festivals Award at the 2015 Festival Awards.
The award is in recognition of the special place that the WOMAD Festival continues to hold (after 33 years) in the summer festival calendar both of the UK and around the world.
The award was presented to Peter by comedian Eddie Izzard who, as you might expect, gave a brilliantly funny speech that helped complete a great evening.
