Enter by saying the secret password for the Aladdin's Cave! Be proud to reveal your unique identity and mystic hidden depths as you go. Creep through the Enchanted Forest into the Secret Garden but be as quiet as a mouse! Pass through the Fairground Treats and fill up on all things sweet with a touch of spice and all things nice. Have fun in the fantastical Fairground Experience, then sit tight and delight in the Travelling Tales of old and new in our Story Glen*. Be sure to pack a bag for your travels, a bottle, cup, plate, spoon or fork, as you don't want to leave a plastic trail through the Magic Kingdom!
(Listen to the Traveller Tales of old and new.*)
Hold close your precious coins as along the way there will be many temptations of ethnic delights and new things to treasure or taste in the Shopping Bazaar and Food Emporium.
Crafty Frogs, Dancing Lions and Indian Divas roam free in the Magic Kingdom but can you spot the Mystical Light Balls and a Particle Zoo or help to make Bridges appear out of nowhere? Will the Beating Dhol Drums and the hypnotic Bluejam Voices beckon you towards Polyxeni, the Greek princess? Will you join her with her sisters on board the Dance Carousel** as they lead you to Dancer's Paradise? Say hello to Sally the Salamander and Stupendous Astalio, in any language you like, if you should pass by and be kind to Buster as he has lost his Beat. If you bump into the Henna Fairy and you are kind, she will wave her wand and paint your hand that will magically change colour!
With such a feast for your senses, if you should feel a little overwhelmed, our Laid-back Lounge** will give you space to relax.
So, why not catch the Multicultural Train** to the whole wide Wonderful World** that awaits you at Culture Bazaar 2020!
