Dia de muertos London 2023: fiesta of life and tradition

by Viridiana Marin Marin

Join the global fiesta of Dia de Muertos in London on Saturday 28 October!

Dia de Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, it’s a vibrant, lively, and pre-Hispanic celebration that combines the joy of life with the reverence of death. Mexicans worldwide take immense pride in this tradition that beautifully embodies the spirit of their culture.

On this special day, families gather to remember and honor their loved ones who have passed away. It’s a time of reflection, but it’s also a joyous occasion filled with laughter, music, delicious food, and colorful decorations.

At the core of this tradition is the belief that the souls of those who have passed return to visit their families. Altars, or “ofrendas,” are lovingly created to welcome them back. These ofrendas are adorned with marigold flowers, sugar skulls, favorite foods, and cherished mementos of the departed ones. It’s a way of saying, “You may be gone, but you’re never forgotten.”

And what better way to celebrate this magnificent tradition than right here in the heart of London! Ossulston Street is about to set to transform into a lively Mexican fiesta, and you’re invited to join in on the fun.
