This past weekend saw Spanish language, music and flavors invade London’s South Bank. On Sunday, May 27th, at Bernie Spain Gardens, the Feria de Londres welcomed the spirit of Spain to the city, inspired by the traditional spring fairs held on the Iberian Peninsula.
Feria de Londres celebrated Spain’s music, entertainment and cuisine, complete with dozens of stalls set up along the banks of the Thames river, serving Spanish food. Some of the city’s most famous bars and restaurants brought their popular products to the event, including Churros García, Brindisa, Jamon Jamon, Ana’s Croquetas, Amigo Food Group, Patio de Luces, Mar de Olivos, Capital Tortilla, London Paella School, Licor 43, and Tio Pepe, the latter being one of the official sponsors.
Attendees were able to taste lots of different tapas as well as Spanish beer, wine, and cocktails, and the Tio Pepe tent offered sherry tasting workshops all throughout the day. Participants had the chance to learn the many different styles of sherry and try Tio Pepe rebujito, a refreshing drink that’s perfect for summer.
There was also plenty of dancing, with dance workshops and professional dance shows featuring Flamenco and Sevillanas, and there was face painting for kids, interactive workshops, arts and crafts, and much more.
