Retail Therapy in the Global Village / Wāhi Haumanu Hokohoko

Step inside the bustling marketplace of WOMAD and experience an explosion of delectable flavours, offbeat clothing and quirky trinkets.

At the Global Village you can eat, drink and shop your way around the world with close to 100 exciting stalls.

Overflowing with the energy of international markets, the retail area boasts an eclectic collection of treasures. You’ll find the best in festival fashion – everything from hats, scarves and henna tattooing to jewellery galore. Alongside the clothes and adornments, you’ll find ceramics, therapeutic oils, crystals and more.

Keep an eye out for the boutique stalls, which feature niche products like upcycled leather creations, woven shoes, hand-beaded heirloom jewellery, one-of-a-kind artworks – or have some fun and grab a lasting keepsake of your time at the festival with a hand-drawn caricature portrait!



Be sure to check out this buzzing space to find funky festival collectables. 

Packed with official festival memorabilia, the WOStore includes a collection of stylish tees, keep cups, sunhats, tote bags, drink bottles and pod chairs. The official printed programme is also on sale.  

Our funky WOMAD tees have a cult following and every year we create exciting new designs for all ages and all sizes. Snap up one of our locally printed shirts and show the world you love WOMAD.

Celebrating 20 years since WOMAD NZ burst into life at Brooklands Bowl and Park, there will be a limited edition of anniversary tees available for sale. Get in quick!

Along with WOMAD wares, you’ll find a vast variety of artist merchandise, music and books in the WOStore. Browse the eclectic mix of exciting music and splurge on a CD from a new artist you’ve just discovered. Or treat yourself to a book by an OMV STEAM Lab presenter or a World of Words writer.

To make it even better, the WOStore is the home of signings. You’ll be able to buy albums and/or books and get them signed in the same place.
