Like an irrepressible autumn ritual, the Crick Crack Club’s annual celebration inspired by the Mexican festival of the Dias de Los Muertos has become part of the fabric of London’s cultural cocktail. And this year it’s coming to Kew Garden’s Mexico After Hours – an evening of live performances, cocktails, and cooking demonstrations inspired by the plants, art, and culture of Mexico.
Expect ritual, shrines, performance, and stories that dig deep into the underworlds and burial grounds of global myth and grown-up fairytale. Comedic, life-affirming, and downright magical – dead ancestors are honoured, the souls of the dead are brought back to the world of the living for a bit of a party, and Death is mocked, cheated, and saluted by turn.
