FREE EVENT: Día de Muertos / Day of the Dead in London

Día de Muertos is back at RichMix for the 3rd year in a row! Mexico Lindo y Querido Community Group London brings the most authentic Day of the Dead celebration in the UK.

This year they want to celebrate The Day of the Dead in a very special way by bringing back the mystic tradition that surrounds the commemoration of our loved ones that have passed away. A fully traditional altar, live music, arts & crafts and probably the most deliciously crafted Mexican food on this side of the pond courtesy of Rosa’s Kitchen & Azteca's.

Day of the Dead is a tradition spanning back thousands of years, where Mexicans honour their dead and celebrate life. You are invited to bring mementos for your dead (i.e photos, food, flowers) to add to this altar.

And this Sunday 1st of November they will have workshops, music and dancers to keep all the family entertained.

SUNDAY 1st. November   /  from 11:00 - 22:00
