Day of the Dead Festival Family Day at The Vaults

Wahaca is bringing Mexico's vibrant Day of the Dead celebrations to London, for a four-day festival of music, food, art and film hosted at The Old Vic Tunnels.

Traditional Day of the Dead children's activities run by Javier Calderon and Antony Ward for children under 8 years old.

Children will be invited to have their faces painted and choose from workshops in painting sugar skulls, making paper masks, storytelling, decorating cardboard coffins and skeleton figures.

Saturday daytime entrance also offers an opportunity to view the exciting visual art on show while afternoon ticket holders can enjoy a performance of a new live score by the Cabinet of Living Cinema to accompany a screening of the Alejandro Jodorowsky classic film Santa Sangre.

Wahaca's temporary street kitchen will be serving food throughout.
