Global Village Food Court

Enter the bustling marketplace of WOMAD for a global explosion of food, fashion, art and treasured trinkets. With close to 100 exciting stalls throughout the Global Village, there is plenty to pique your curiosity and whet your appetite!

Treat your taste buds to flavours from all over the globe. You’ll find stalls of authentic cuisine from India, Hungary, Spain, Vietnam and more, or feast on some of the best vegan and vegetarian food around. 

The Global Village is the place to find that perfect cooling treat in the WOMAD heat. Hydrate with delicious fresh juices, and handmade ice creams, or maybe a fresh-roasted organic coffee will perk you up!

Taranaki Offshore Partnership Taste the World

Taranaki Offshore Partnership Taste the World is a delectable festival highlight where WOMAD’s international artists serve up favourite dishes from their homelands. 

Held in the Kunming Garden, Taranaki Offshore Partnership Taste the World will again be hosted by long-time broadcaster Katrina Smith, whose biggest passions are music and food. 

Expect a dash of humour, a dollop of storytelling and a sprinkle of secret family recipes in this exotic line-up of culinary entertainment.


Find all the refreshing beverages you need at the different themed bars dotted around the WOMAD site. From the beautiful and relaxing Kunming Garden Pagoda Bar, to the upbeat and lively Brooklands Stage bar.

To help reduce waste, WOMAD offers reusable Globelet cups. Purchase one with your drink at any of the bars, and get it refilled when you buy another drink. Take it home to keep as a souvenir!

Remember, you must be of legal age to purchase alcohol. Our bartenders operate under a responsible host policy.

TSB Wai Water

Bring your water bottles and fill up at our TSB Wai Water refill stations - you'll find them all around the site in lots of handy locations.

If you are after a chilled water, or a new drink bottle then head to the TSB Wai Water stand, located at the top of the Bowl.

Check out the TSB Wai Water page for more info.


Grab a coffee and sort your caffeine fix from one of our on-site cafes. You can get a coffee from any of our cafe vendors in the Global Village Food Court, or from the coffee carts located near each of the stages.
