Wahaca is hosting an enormous Day of the Dead party in London

James Manning

Did you know that 2015 is officially 'the Year of Mexico in the UK'? Si, es verdad – and our favourite homegrown Mexican chain restaurant Wahaca is celebrating with a massive Day of the Dead fiesta in London. On November 7 they'll be filling Tobacco Dock with music, art, culture and of course huge amounts of Mexican food. 

If you're not already getting a bit slobbery at the thought, then here are some more drool-worthy details. Tacos, churros, tortas, baracoa and elotes are all on offer at a food market, along with Mexican hot chocolate and the hard stuff (tequila and mezcal). Wahaca's founder Thomasina Miers co-hosts a supper club with Mexican super-chef Enrique Olvera, which should be muy rico.

The other entertainment is just as tasty. You can catch an exhibition of Mexican and British art curated by the Saatchi Gallery and Rodrigo Peñafiel and talks about Mexican politics and culture by the charity English PEN. The live bill includes London’s own The Horrors and Crystal Fighters, plus Morrissey covers by Mexican supergroup Mexrissey (who recently played a sold-out show at the Barbican). There's also a heavyweight DJ bill until 1am, with Toy Selectah and Erick Rincon repping Mexico's party capital Monterrey.

If that all sounds like it could be up your calle, then head over to our offers page where we're running exclusive early-bird booking for Wahaca's Day of the Dead. As they say in the DF: ¡Andale!
