This summer, the UK’s number one cognac brings you the Courvoisier Institute of Grand Cocktails – an immersive theatrical experience through a world of classic cocktails.

From 13-14 July 2012, Courvoisier will take you on a tour through a once derelict institute at The Heritage Rooms in Bloomsbury Square London, where you can explore a surreal world of cocktails past and present. Set up by Courvoisier over a hundred years ago for the world’s grandest bartenders to perfect the ultimate cocktails, the mythical Courvoisier Institute of Grand Cocktails was all but forgotten; but, for two nights only, Courvoisier will open the doors for you to discover three classic cocktails and their creative setting which have been frozen in time with the bartenders still perfecting their cocktails.

Working with top bartenders, Amanda Humphrey, Chris Lacey and Mickael Perron Courvoisier has brought the story of these characters to life. Join us and enjoy a refreshing Courvoisier Punch in the building’s produce stores, make a toast with a Courvoisier Champagne Cocktail in a grand but derelict Rococo ballroom or sip a classic Courvoisier Sazerac in a New Orleans apothecary. The rest of the institute is yours to explore…

Tickets for this unique cocktail experience are sure to sell out quickly so make sure you join the revolutionary cognac house and open your eyes to the wonder of cocktails on a grand scale.

Wahaca presents Day of the Dead Festival co-produced by NOMAD and the Embassy of Mexico in the UK
Wed 31 Oct – Sat 3 Nov 2012
Wahaca is bringing Mexico’s vibrant Day of the Dead celebrations to London, for a four-day festival of music, food, art and film hosted at The Old Vic Tunnels.
Performing each night, on the first leg of their European tour will be this year’s Wilderness Festival headliners, Rodrigo y Gabriela with their unique instrumental blend of metal, jazz and world music. The tunnels will be transformed, with Wahaca’s very own temporary street kitchen and Mezcalaria bar, where bartenders will be serving cocktails made from award-winning Tequila, Olmeca Altos, along with an exhibition of work by highly acclaimed Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide, work by the eminent Mexican artist Dr Lakra and newly commissioned installations of visual arts by the London based Le Gun collective, British artist Hew Locke and Nancy Fouts.
In addition to the night time shows, during the daytime hours of Saturday 3 November, families are invited to attend an array of traditional Day of the Dead children’s workshops. Click here for more information.
Evening entrance from 7pm offers access to the visual arts show and the headline music concert Rodrigo y Gabriela, screening of Santa Sangre with performance of a new live score by the Cabinet of Living Cinema, a Mezcalería experience and more music, performance and late night revelry with Communion DJs. Evening tickets priced at £51 include food from Wahaca’s Street Kitchen and two Olmeca Altos cocktails.
From 7pm
