London Wine Week Festival is back to Devonshire Square!
5/06/2017 - 9/06/2017 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM
A CITY SUMMER OASIS FILLED WITH WINE
London Wine Week is returning to Devonshire Square this June but with a few exciting new twists!
From 5th to 9th june, Devonshire Square will once again be hosting the hub of London Wine Week as the festival brings a plethora of global pop-ups to the square and involves our resident wine bars.
As the home for London Wine Week, expect brand new names such as Wines of Argentina who will be shipping their vibrant Latin American lifestyle and vintages across to London in the form of a deconstructed shipping container-turned-bar, as well as some favourite regions of previous years including Vins de Provence, with their sun-soaked rosés, and Wines of Portugal, with their fresh whites and complex reds.
There will also be a brand new sparkling wine from Freixenet to taste, which is yet to be globally launched - stay tuned for when the DrinkUp team let this fizzy cat out of the bag.
Devonshire Square will also return as the festival's festival pass collection point from Monday to Friday. All pop-ups will be serving £5 wine flights for LWW festival pass holders.

6 July - 17 August: 12:30 PM - 12:30 PM
Devonshire Square is marking the UK-India Year of Culture with a sensorially engaging retrospective journey through Indian dancing styles, from contemporary Bollywood shows to some of the most ancient and symbolically charged Indian classical dances. The 7 week programme will showcase acts by some of the most talented dancers in the South Asian dance panorama presented by Akademi South Asian Dance, while the Bollywood themed opening show will be presented by Bollywood Co. The UK-India Year of Culture represents a perfect opportunity to celebrate Devonshire Square’s rich and charming history which is strongly linked to India. The 4 acre campus - today a premium office and retail destination as well as an artistic hub - used to be a complex of warehouses back in 1820 where the most valuable goods traded by the East India Company used to be stored. The dancers’ strikingly colourful and elaborated costumes will bring to life India’s precious textiles once stored in the Bengal Warehouse, evoked also by the festival’s title “Tales of Silk and Music”, creating a powerful metaphorical link between Devonshire Square past, as a warehouse, and present, as a culturally vibrant destination. All shows will take place on Thursdays at 12.30pm in Devonshire Square’s historical Western Courtyard from 6th July till 17th August. All performances are free attendance and registration is not required.
