Día de Muertos
After our first hugely successful event last year, please join us for another ‘Day of the Dead Extravaganza’ celebrating skeletons, skulls and all things Mexico.
Day of the Dead is a beautiful ritual when Mexicans happily and lovingly honour the lives of departed ancestors and we are celebrating with them big time ~ in style! Make sure you’re part of our very own flamboyant Mexican Fiesta!! Arriba!!!
And this year, we are collaborating with The Centre for Mexico at Southampton University, who will be bringing a wonderful array of exciting, traditional Mexican activities for all the family to enjoy.
Activities for the family will include sugar skull creations, making Mexican flowers and Papel Picado, building an authentic Day of the Dead alter collage, learning how to face paint Day of the Dead style and a Chilli planting activity and talk outside. There will be face painters on hand to flamboyantly transform you for the day!! Make sure you dress up to match your fantastic face design. Grown ups ~ you’ll want to get involved too!!
Chill out with top DJ Mark James from Southampton's Maximum Funk & Soul Dance Party Soul 45 spinning his strictly 7" 45rpm vinyl records bringing the joint alive in a Mexican frenzy.
