Feria de Londres Brings Spanish Sunshine to the Capital 

SEEN will be attending this marvellous cultural festival taking place under the iconic Tower Bridge. Feria de Londres is set to bring the vibrant and lively celebrations of Andalusia to the banks of the Thames on 27th and 28th May. Inspired by the traditional festivities of Andalusia’s colourful spring fairs, Feria de Londres will be a weekend of Spanish food, drink, music and dancing.

Foodies will be able to sample delicious tapas and Spain’s finest beer, wine and cocktails, and take part in sherry tastings and masterclasses, while two stages and a dance floor will feature live entertainment from passionate Flamenco dancers, authentic bands and special guest Tomasito, creating an Andalusian festival never seen before in the capital.

Feria de Londres will see brightly decorated ‘casetas’ line the banks of the Thames crammed with all kinds of Spanish fare, including typical tapas dishes such as Tortilla de Patata, organic Gazpacho, moreish Churros and Buñuelos. For meat lovers, Spanish ‘Ham Master’, Jose Sol, will be running special masterclasses around the celebrated Jamón Ibérico throughout the weekend, explaining carvery techniques and imparting his wisdom about this celebrated Spanish delicacy.

Guests will be invited to take part in sherry tastings run by the world’s best-seller, Tio Pepe, sample Spanish beers from Cruzcampo and drink pitchers of Rebujitos, a refreshing and very moreish Andalusian cocktail made with Fino Sherry with lemonade, ice and mint leaves – the perfect summer drink. Make SEEN’s a large one.

With temperatures forecast in the high twenties for this busy weekend, by the river is the best place to be to see stallholders and entertainers in traditional Spanish dress. SEEN is particularly looking forward to the Sevillanas and Rumba dancing lessons plus Flamenco clapping workshops, and will be taking castanets along to participate. There will be activities for the children too, including face painting, hairstyling, art and dancing. See you all there.

Saturday 27th of May: 12pm-10pm
