Other sweet options include pastries, crepes and the new ‘Chai ‘n’ Vibes collaboration, which combines a social enterprise with a community service to provide a vegan and zero waste space to connect, hang out, catch up with your tribe or just dreamily contemplate life. If you are after something a little stronger or more vibrant, then head over to your mate Bill’s Bar or Cooper’s Bar where the musician sessions flow as freely as the beer. You may be persuaded in from the streets by the rhythms at Luna Bar or find yourself cosying up with new friends in Halcyon.
Around sunset is always a good time for our legendary Shampine which is abundant in the Pineapple Lounge. Did you know, this is the most sought after drink on site annually? It is also a recipe handed down within three generations including a secret ingredient we aren’t privy to. You will find it is a refreshing blend of white rum, ginger ale, and fruit juices topped with locally sourced seasonal fruits including fresh passion fruit, mint, watermelon and pineapple and goes very well when the daily Pine Time talent show hits the stage.
Woodford Folk Festival offers an ubiquitous menu with food and drink featured from all over the world. For more information and to plan ahead, check out the food vendors at this year’s festival on page 115 of the programme.
