Can we just turn up on the day?
Yes, you can turn up on the day and buy a ticket ( price will depend on availability - free and £5 tickets sold out, £10 selling fast). Taking into account the festival’s popularity in previous years, to avoid disappointment we highly recommend you buy a ticket in advance. once capacity if full we cannot emit new tickets on the day.
CAN WE BRING OUR OWN FOOD AND DRINK INTO THE VENUE?
water will be freely available at the festival, BUt guests cannot bring their own FOOD AND DRINK IN. THe REaSON FOR THIS IS THAT WE'd LIKE visitors to support our independent food and drink traders from the Latin community, as this is one of the only festival outlets where they can showcase and serve their delicious Latin American food and drink. Previously, people have been allowed to bring in their own food and drink, to the detriment of the traders who often come from far and wide and make a huge effort. If we lose the traders due to lack of customers, we cannot put on the event, because they also bring us much needed income to put on this free festival. we also think eating food that you might not normally eat, enhances the cultural experience so we appreciate you giving it a try. and we know you'll love it!
WHAT IS THEIR FOR KIDS AT LATINOLIFE IN THE PARK?
There is something for everyone at LatinoLife in the Park, and we definitely recommend it for families, particularly between 12-6pm. Apart from the music and dance shows on stage, there is a designated kids zone with Magic Shows, Slapstick Comedy, Puppet Shows, Storytelling, Giant Bubbles, Party Games, Balloon Modelling, Limbo & Conga Dancing, Mini Discos & MORE! (activities tbc).
WE would recommend taking the kids early as soon as we open to witness the Big Dance Extravaganza - a parade of dancers and drummers from all over the continent - a guaranteed feast for the senses with their kaleidoscope of colour and sound! Kids should try new foods and can have fun in our authentic immersive experiences.
are dogs allowed into the festival?
