Mexican cultural events in the United Kingdom
Attending cultural events held in Britain is a good way of gaining a deeper understanding of Mexican culture. The Society of Mexican Students in the UK is a good starting point, as this organisation has presence in several British towns. Their annual symposium presents an opportunity to take part in cultural events and social activities.
The British Mexican Society is based in Northumberland and runs lectures, drinks receptions, tequila and food tastings, and talks on Mexican arts and culture at various London venues.
Mexico Amigo is a London-based charity that organises a large number of cultural events where attendees can participate in traditional Mexican celebrations, such as the "posadas", held prior to Christmas, which are an opportunity to observe religious processions and traditional dancing, and to sample special dishes made for the occasion.
