Feria de Horsham
Inspired by Southern Spain’s traditional Spring fairs, Feria de Horsham is a resplendent celebration of Spanish cuisine and entertainment. Such fairs date back to the Middle Ages and over time have evolved into huge regional events. Spanish cities, towns and villages come alive as hundreds of locals take to the beautifully decorated streets, brimming with food and drinks stalls, in celebration of Andalusian culture.
Feria de Horsham will recreate the scenes seen at many of Spain’s local Ferias. Throughout the weekend, there will be chances for everyone to get involved with celebrations. From Sevillana dance lessons to flamenco rhythm workshops, Feria de Londres will also offer family-friendly activities, with activities for children in the form of face painting, hair styling, arts and crafts.
To celebrate the richness of Spanish cuisine, guests will be able to tuck into tasty tapas and enjoy some flavourful seafood paella while enjoying the live spectacles on offer. Bright ‘casetas’ will line the town centre and will be hosting some fine Spanish delicacies. Guests can choose between dishes such as Croquetas, Iberico Ham, Filled Tortillas and Pimientos de Padron or treat their sweet tooth with some delicious sugar coated churros. Also on hand will be Spanish food experts and producers offering special tastings.
Across the Feria, there will be a bar serving some of Spain’s most refreshing drinks – from ice cold Iberian beers to the finest regional wines. The famous Tio Pepe, Spain’s favourite fino, will be hosting a series of sherry tasting masterclasses where guests will be able to explore the different styles of Spain’s most iconic wine. On offer will be the traditional Andalusian cocktail, a refreshing Tio Pepe Rebujito, consisting of Fino sherry, lemonade, fresh mint on the rocks – the perfect summer drink.
At the heart of every Spanish festival and celebration lies song and dance. Flamboyant Flamenco dancers will be giving passionate dance performances while creating the authentic Feria party atmosphere. Guests can immerse themselves in live performances capturing the essence of Spain.
This free festival is a celebration of all things Spanish and is the perfect place for families and groups of all ages.
