During WOMAD the gorgeous Kunming Garden is transformed into a bustling hive of activity. This charming area has been given an exciting revamp for the 2019 festival, and it is now the home of an upmarket new festival feature, the Pagoda Bar.
The Pagoda Bar’s cocktails, fine wines and craft beers are a perfect accompaniment to another new feature of the Kunming Garden - the World of Words stage. For the first time this varied programme includes late night comedy sessions from some of New Zealand’s best comedians, which sits perfectly alongside a variety of award-winning authors, poets, and speakers.
The tranquil Kunming Garden also hosts the popular OMV Taste The World stage, where musicians share their favourite hometown recipes, as well as the lively Living Library Programme.
