Mexico's Day of the Dead Festival
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Mexico had spooky down way before we started carving pumpkins. Their Dia de los Muertos celebrations have been happening for around 3,000 years, and the day is devoted to remembering loved ones who have died and sending prayers to those you have recently lost. This event, brought to London by the Embassy of Mexico, will include an exhibition of pieces by contemporary artists, a tribute to those lost in World War I, daily screenings of 1984 cult classic 'Under the Volcano' and Jose Cuervo tequila masterclasses. Children can decorate sugar skulls, make a skeleton, paint masks and learn about papel picado in a series of free workshops (register in advance for a place).
