About The Event

Join us for the incredible display of building Castells, a ‘human tower’ performance by Castellers of London and a chance to taste the culinary tradition of the Calçotada.

The Catalan Castells (or human towers) dates back more than 200 years, with Castellers of London performing and promoting this tradition in London since 2015. They set up their training site in Bermondsey and performed in The Blue in previous years.  This event is an opportunity to learn about the Castells and Catalan culture in Bermondsey and a chance to practice during the workshops.

You can get a taste of Catalonia with the Taster of 4 Calçots with romesco sauce.
