More on The Door
In conjunction with the University of Southampton’s Mexsoc and Mexsu Centre
Join us for another ‘Día de Muertos Family Extravaganza' celebrating skeletons, skulls and all things Mexico.
Day of the Dead is a beautiful series of rituals when Mexicans happily and lovingly honour the lives of departed ancestors. We will be celebrating with them big time and in style! This year’s theme will be a celebration of women in Mexico, such as the iconic Frida Kahlo.
Día de Muertos
Bigger and better than ever as we join forces with Southampton University’s Mexican student society and the Mexican studies centre who will be inviting you to join in authentic Mexican activities, games and contests for all the family, enjoy the all female Mexican Mariachis band, and eat real Mexican food.
**And new this year - Tequila tasting for the grown ups!!**
We will be also taking time to celebrate Mexican women with a focus on Frida Kahlo plus music from amazing female Mariachi band Las Guadalupes.
Crafts for the children and we will be creating our own Day of the Dead altar to remember and honour deceased loved ones. Please bring a photo in a frame to take part.
