Returning to the UK for its third year, Feria de Londres brings Andalusian carnival spirit to London over the last weekend of May.

Colourful ‘casetas’ will be popping up in the aptly named Bernie Spain Gardens on the South Bank, serving up Spanish tapas and cocktails as well as tasting workshops, and vibrantly colourful Flamenco dance shows. There will also be interactive activities for the whole family 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 and younger visitors can enjoy activities like face painting, storytelling, 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.

From tastings and tapas to rumba and sevillianas, the festival is a free family friendly celebration of all things Andalusian and is the perfect place for groups of all ages.
