Theend of October and the start of November is a spooky time of year. In Europe, we associate it with Halloween, a night to celebrate the supernatural, dress up in scary costumes and eat too many sweets. But in Mexico it’s all about the Day of the Dead or as they call it, Dia de Los Muertos.
Wahaca are leading the way with the celebrations with Thomasina Miers’ Mexican mini-chain throwing a mini-festival in the Old Vic Tunnels. From Wednesday 31st October until Saturday 3rd November they will be hosting four days of art, music, film and of course food. Rodrigo y Gabriela will be headlining the festivities each night with their intricate and mesmerising guitar skills. Mexican artists and photographers will be displaying their latest exhibitions, to be enjoyed alongside tequila cocktails and Mexican food.
Tickets are £51 and include admission to the tunnels from 7pm, a screening of ‘Santa Sagre’ with a live score, two cocktails, a selection of street food and of course the headline gig from Rodrigo y Gabriela, quite a line up!
