LondonSwedes Crayfish festival is back! 

We are so excited to be teaming up with our partners Nordic Spirit* once again for two events over a weekend at the end of September!

We have exclusively hired a large, bright and central venue - even with some outside space for first comers to enjoy a drink in the sun (yes, we are certain the sun will still be shining on us that weekend!)

For those of you who don't know what a Crayfish party is, let us just say it's one of Sweden's biggest traditions where we celebrate the Swedish Crayfish season* by eating loads of Crayfish, socialising, singing snaps songs, and having fun, all while wearing the traditional Crayfish accessories like the hat and the bibs. We are also very excited to also be working with Smörgåsbord who will be a part of the menu with their amazing Swedish meatballs (that also comes in two vegetarian options).


We are adding to the fun with our fun hostess, live entertainment and our big raffle as usual!
