Feria De Londres 2017

Feria De Londres in Potters Fields

Feria de Londres will be a unique and free event that invites everyone to experience first-hand the warmth, vitality and excitement of one of Spain’s most famous celebrations.

Taking place under the iconic Tower Bridge, Feria de Londres is set to bring the vibrant and lively celebrations of ‘Andalucía’ to the banks of the River Thames this May Bank Holiday. Inspired by the traditional festivities of the region’s colourful spring fairs, such as the famous Feria de Abril in Seville and Feria de Jerez, Feria de Londres will be a weekend of delicious Spanish tapas, beer, wine and live entertainment, never seen before in the capital.

Feria de Londres will see all kinds of Spanish fare, including typical dishes such as Tortilla de Patatas, Gazpacho Andaluz and Jamón de Bellota as well as delicious barbequed seafood and meats, and traditional Spanish Churros.

Drinks on offer will range from beautiful Spanish wines and all kinds of sherries to refreshing Cruzcampo beer and cocktails, including the traditional Rebujito – Tío Pepe Sherry with lemonade, ice and mint.

Throughout Feria de Londres, in the spirit of the original Ferias, the public and entertainers will be invited to dress in their finest traditional costumes and regional dress, such as the hat, short jacket and tight trousers ‘traje corto’ for men and the flamboyant flamenco style dresses for women.

Taking place over one of London’s busiest weekends, Feria de Londres will be a celebration of Andalusian dancing, music and live entertainment, with bands and local flamenco artists, and guest star Tomasito coming over from Spain to create an authentic party atmosphere.

Londoners and visitors alike will be encouraged to fully enter into the fun with Sevillanas and Rumba dancing lessons, and tap into the raw beauty and rhythmic emotion of flamenco with clapping and castanets workshops. In true Spanish style, Feria de Londres will be an event for all the family, and throughout the weekend, there will be children’s activities including face painting and dancing.

The first of its kind, Feria de Londres will be a unique and free event that invites Londoners and tourists alike to experience first-hand the warmth, vitality and excitement of some of Spain’s most famous celebrations.

Potters Fields Park lies at the very heart of London, on the southern side of the Thames.It can be accessed either via Tooley St, Tower Bridge Road, the Queen’s Walk from More London, or from Shad Thames. The best postcode to use for SATNAV or Google maps is SE1 2AA (though WISE16 recommends using public transport when possible)

It’s got sweeping views of the river and iconic sights of Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the ‘Gherkin’, the ‘Walkie-Talkie’, the glass dome of City Hall and the HMS Belfast. Potters Fields Park is also one of the last remaining green open spaces along the riverside and the perfect background for La Feria de Londres

And the team of WISE16 thought to get you started with this video demonstrating how to dance the 1st Sevillana (as they are divided in four parts and styles)
