Day of the Dead
26-28th: Performers and kids workshops 12-4pm 29th: Parade 12-4pm
The Quay, Camden Market Hawley Wharf
Join us at Camden Market Hawley Wharf this half term for free Day of the Dead performances and activities.
From the 23rd October, our giant sugar skull will stand watch in The Quay, and from Thursday 26th-Saturday 28th it will be joined by immersive entertainers, roaming Hawley Wharf between 12-4pm.
One of our railway arches will be transformed into a children’s entertainment hub with complimentary face painting, balloon modelling and colouring, while immersive children's performers keep little one entertained through song, dance and storytelling.
On Sunday, 29 October, come along for our traditional Dia de los Muertos parade in partnership with the Somers Gallery, formerly known as the UK Mexican Arts Society, plus workshops inspired by traditional crafting such as flower crowns and mini lanterns.
Tickets not required. All activities are free and operated on a drop-in basis, which may mean wait times. There will be plenty of performers and we will endeavour to keep little ones entertained!
