A Cultural Feast For The Senses

By Marcus Braid on May 1, 2015 in News

Thousands of people are expected to descend on Bondi Junction to taste dishes from all over the world, meet new people and celebrate Waverley’s diverse melting pot of cultures when Oxford Street Mall is transformed into a cosmopolitan feast for the senses on Sunday, May 3.

Waverley Mayor Sally Betts called on young and old alike to get down to Global Table and join in what is a special community day.

β€œI want to encourage everyone to come to Global Table,” Cr Betts said.

β€œIt is a wonderful way to make new friends and celebrate our diversity. It’s a feast of multicultural food, entertainment and friendship.”

Held annually, Global Table is an established and popular community celebration of cultural diversity.

Different to your average food festival, Global Table features cuisines and entertainment from all around the world and there are free activities such as face painting held throughout the day. There will also be cooking demonstrations, a 25-metre communal table, dancing and music.

The event has proven highly popular thanks largely to the varied cultures it represents, with Turkish, Spanish, Indian, Lebanese, Italian, Jamaican, Tibetan and Malaysian cuisines among the vast array of international cuisines on offer last year. Culturally unique dancing and singing will also add colour to the day.

Global Table will be on at Oxford Street Mall in Bondi Junction from 11am to 4pm. For more information, visit
