A three-day Spanish festival is heading to the South Bank for a colourful exhibition of cuisine and entertainment.
The Feria festival is a celebration of Andalusian carnival spirit and will take place on May 24-26 at the Bernie Spain Gardens.
Throughout the weekend, 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 tasty treats and Iberian delicacies as well as traditional tapas and flavourful paella from seasoned aficionados.
Throughout the Feria, there will be bars serving some of Spain’s most refreshing drinks – 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.
Feria organiser Ruben Cordero, said: “Perfectly located on the South Bank, Feria is easily accessible to everyone who lives in South London. “The fair showcases the best of Spanish culture with live entertainment in the form of flamenco dancing, music and an array of delicious Spanish food and drink vendors – a perfect family day out!
“After two incredibly successful years, we are so excited to return to the Bernie Spain Gardens and host a bigger and better Feria de Londres. It’s the perfect opportunity for friends, families, Londoners and tourists to get together and bask in the merriment and excitement of Spanish culture and cuisine.
It’s a great way to bring different communities together and is also a lovely way to see in the Summer months!
“We are very excited to bring talented artists from Cadiz and Seville but equally excited to the special Sherry tastings which will be hosted by Tío Pepe.”
