WOMAD Trading 2017
Tantalising smells and tastes jostle for space in the souk-like global market at WOMAD. At the various stalls there’s so much to discover and play with, for adults and children alike. And then there’s the food, a far cry from a burger van, you can travel across the globe with your taste buds and explore everything from South American fare to delicious morsels from across India, Africa and Asia, right the way through to the more English tea and cake.
If you feel that you have something to add to this melting pot then please do apply to be a trader at WOMAD 2017!
