07.07.2023 Castle Square to host Fiesta Latina Procession in a celebration of arts, culture and heritage

As part of the Bankside Open Spaces Festival, Castle Square will be hosting the Fiesta Latina Procession, taking place on Saturday 10th June, as part of the annual celebration of arts, culture, and heritage in the Elephant and Castle community.

The Fiesta Latina Procession launches at Castle Square, showcasing some of the most exciting and vibrant groups in the city, including Yurupari, Coldanzas, Rumiñawi and Expression Inca. The event promises to be a colourful celebration, where participants and onlookers alike can revel in the rhythms of Latin music and dance. The procession will then lead community members to Bankside Open Spaces Festival where Latina performers open the festival’s Main Stage on Union Street’s Flat Iron Square.

Sponsored by Southwark Council, the Fiesta Latina Procession promises to be a highlight of this year’s Bankside Open Spaces Festival (BOSFest). The Procession celebrates the diversity and creativity of the Elephant and Castle community, which has a rich Latin American culture, and provides an opportunity for residents and visitors to come together to enjoy the heritage of the area.

The Bankside Open Spaces Festival is an annual celebration of arts, culture, and heritage in the SE1 community. It is run by local charity Bankside Open Spaces Trust and is committed to promoting diversity, inclusivity, and creativity. With a wide range of events and activities taking place across the area, the festival is a celebration of the vibrant and dynamic culture of the Elephant and Castle community.
