Campo Viejo's 2015 Streets of Spain Festival on the South Bank


Campo Viejo's 'Streets of Spain' festival is back on the South Bank for the first May Bank Holiday of 2015, running Friday 1st - Monday 4th.  The area under Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the area around it, will be converted into a mini Spain with a Boqueria food market, a Plaza Mayor, with live music, and some bookable 'Blend Your Own Wine' masterclasses -  which were amazingly popular last year.  Sounds like a reason for a celebration...

"Campo Viejo’s Streets of Spain is returning to London’s Southbank on May 1, and with over 300,000 guests descending on the riverside last year, 2015 promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
At this year’s Streets of Spain, Campo Viejo, the UK’s  no.1 Spanish wine brand, is creating a unique interactive experience to discover what it’s like to be able to ‘hear’ taste.
In a world first collaboration with renowned synaesthete Nick Ryan, guests will be able to participate in the Campo Viejo Soundscape – a profoundly immersive audio experience that translates the sensations of enjoying Campo Viejo into sound.
Together, Campo Viejo and Nick are seeking to explore the relationship between taste and sound, and aim to achieve a new, entirely sensory way of describing the flavour of the wine without reading a word of a traditional tasting note. You won’t believe your ears.
This year’s Streets of Spain is split into three neighbourhoods, each offering guests a different flavour of Spain.
Explore the hustle and bustle of Las Ramblas and sample the delicious delicacies on offer from Barcelona’s world famous La Boqueria market. From delicious paella to succulent cured meats or freshly prepared hot churros, every taste is catered for. It’s a Spanish food lover’s delight.
Visit Madrid’s popular Plaza Mayor and be treated to live music performances from an eclectic mix of DJs and musicians, and get some of that fiesta feel.
And finally, be transported to Logroño, home of Campo Viejo, where back by popular demand are last year’s sell-out Blend Your Own Wine masterclasses. The class is led by two of Campo Viejo’s most experienced winemakers. Classes are small and intimate, with four classes running per day over the weekend. Tickets can be purchased in advance or on the day. Also new to the area are colourful art installations from urban artists, Okuda & Remed."

When - Friday 1st - Monday 4th May 2015

Where - Festival Village underneath Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, SE1 8XX

The Pump Street Bakery's Chocolate & Cake Pop-up Shop in Shoreditch


The week before the May Bank Holiday - 28th April - 3rd May - Pump Street Bakery is opening a pop-up shop at 67 Redchurch Street to sell its new chocolate bar, Rye Crumb, Milk & Sea Salt.  /they will also be selling their Eccles Cakes, and holding daily chocolate tastings.  Open daily from 10am - 6pm (until 7pm on Thurs 30th) - please visit to buy some of their wonderful-sounding specialities!

"The Rye Crumb, Milk and Sea Salt chocolate bar (60% Ecuador – Hacienda Limon) is the second chocolate in a series of creations from Pump Street Bakery that merge the best of their two obsessions; baking and  chocolate. The first bar in this series was the Sourdough and Sea Salt bar.
Pump Street Bakery is home to one of the country’s few ‘bean-to-bar’, single origin, small batch chocolates; made by importing cacao beans - which are fairly traded - from farms or cooperatives in Ecuador, Venezuela, Grenada and Madagascar, then made in the small Suffolk town of Orford.Pump Street Bakery’s own made rye bread is conched through the chocolate and then toasted sourdough is added for crunch towards the end. The strong bean flavours and mellow milkiness of the 60% milk chocolate offer a perfect base for the robust and slightly tart flavours of rye sourdough.
It has always been the plan of father and daughter team Chris and Joanna Brennan to blend their chocolate and bakery produce creating a bar, and growing chocolate and bread range, with more interesting content and substance. As they put it, “It’s the natural progression from working with chocolate and baking. They have always been made for each other; we’re just trying to find new ways of showing off the best of both.”
To celebrate this new chocolate bar, Pump Street Bakery is opening a temporary bakery shop on Redchurch Street in Shoreditch from Tuesday 28th April until Sunday 3rd May. Alongside the full library of Pump Street Bakery chocolate (from 58% - 100% bars), the shop will also house their much-loved Eccles cakes, made with Voztizza Grade A Greek currants, a special blend of spices, Armagnac and Pump Street Bakery’s own puff pastry. The team will host daily chocolate tastings so visitors can sample the full range of bean-to-bar, single origin chocolate from Suffolk. There will also be fresh daily  bread – Vermont sourdough and 100% rye – and a rotation of "guest" baked goods such as their doughnuts, croissants, and famous bear claws."

When - Tues 28th April - Sun 3rd May 2015
10am - 6pm (7pm on Thurs 30th)

Where - 67 Redchurch Street London, E2 7DJ
