Come and join us in a unique and special ancient Mexican celebration Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). In Mexican culture it is believed that during this time of the year your lost loved ones come back to visit. Family and friends gather together to honour their relatives and friends by cooking their favourite dishes, dancing, playing music, and telling their favourite stories. Families visit their graves and create elaborate beautiful decorated altars in their homes to welcome them. This is all a part of celebrating the cycle of life.

This exciting event will feature traditional dances performed by Colibri Mexican Folkdance UK.  Then followed by Day of the Dead themed activities and craft workshops.

An example of a typical Mexican altar will be on display on the ground floor of the library for 3 weeks. They are present in every Mexican household at this time of the year .

Free drop-in, suitable for all ages.
