Strolling through the British Museum yesterday, the above flyer caught my eye. It seems that el Dia de los Muertos is finally getting the recognition it deserves in the UK. On Sunday 1st November, the British Museum is hosting a whole range of activities and events in celebration of the Mexican festival. It's all free, from the Uk's only authentic Mariachi band to the children's workshops. For further details, you can download the programme here. I'm intrigued to see what the 'steet food' being served in the Great Hall will be like!
Wahaca are also getting in on the act by offering free shots of tequila (reposado rather than blanco...lovely) on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd November. A special Day of the Dead cocktail will also be available but hey, I'm all about the free stuff (although I couldn't resist buying this sugar skull from the British Museum).
