Returning to the United Kingdom for its third year, this multicultural event will be bringing its famous Spanish carnival spirit to the capital of England over the last weekend of May.

Colourful stalls will be in the aptly named Bernie Spain Gardens on the picturesque South Bank, serving up Spanish tapas, cocktails, workshops, vibrant Flamenco dance shows, interactive activities and live Spanish music.

Throughout the weekend, there will be chances for everyone to immerse themselves in the celebrations and see the dancers from London’s best flamenco schools that will lead Sevillana dance lessons and flamenco rhythm workshops.

Simultaneously there are some activities for children 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, plus some traditional tapas and tasty 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.

Additionally, there will be bars serving some of Spain’s most refreshing drinks – from ice-cold Iberian beers to the finest regional wines.

At the heart of every Spanish fiesta lies song and dance.

While relaxing in the gardens, guests can immerse themselves in live music and dance performances from guest flamenco dancers and Spanish gypsy bands designed to get everyone dancing.

Taking place over one of London’s busiest weekends, Feria de Londres is a unique and free event that invites Londoners and tourists alike to experience first-hand the warmth, vitality and exuberance of Spanish culture.

Dates and place: 24 May to 26 May, Bernie Spain Gardens, South Bank, SE1 9PH. For further information: Feria de Londres.
