Returning to the UK for its third year, Feria de Londres will be bringing its famous Andalusian carnival spirit to London over the last weekend of May.
Bernie Spain Gardens on the South Bank, serving up Spanish tapas, refreshing cocktails, tasting workshops, Flamenco dance shows, interactive activities and live Spanish music.
Taking place from 24th – 26th May, the three-day festival, inspired by Andalusia’s traditional spring fairs, is a celebration of Spanish cuisine and entertainment.
Throughout the weekend, there will be chances for everyone to fully immerse themselves in the celebrations. Flamboyant dancers from London’s best flamenco schools will lead Sevillana dance lessons and flamenco rhythm workshops, while children can enjoy activities like face painting, fan making and kids flamenco dance lessons.
Alongside the entertainment, a variety of food stalls will be serving an array of tasty treats and Iberian delicacies.
No Spanish festival would be complete without some traditional tapas and flavourful paella from seasoned aficionados. Authentic Spanish traders and key producers from some of London’s famous Spanish stores will be present and running mini tastings.
Throughout the Feria, there will be bars serving some of Spain’s most refreshing drinks Ã¢â‚¬â€œ from ice-cold Iberian beers to the finest regional wines.
Tio Pepe, Spain’s favourite fino, will be hosting a series of sherry tasting masterclasses where guests will be able to explore the different styles of Spain’s most iconic wine.
On offer will be the original Feria cocktail, a refreshing Rebujito, consisting of Tio Pepe Fino sherry, lemonade, and fresh mint on the rocks.
At the heart of every Spanish fiesta lies song and dance. While relaxing in the gardens, guests can immerse themselves in live music and dance performances from guest flamenco dancers and Spanish gypsy bands designed to get everyone dancing.
Taking place over one of London’s busiest weekends, Feria de Londres is a unique and free event that invites Londoners and tourists alike to experience first-hand the warmth, vitality and exuberance of Spanish culture.
From tastings and tapas to rumba and sevillianas, the festival is a celebration of all things Andalusian and is perfect for families and groups of all ages.
