This August, we're celebrating one of Spain's most recognisable festivals, La Tomatina. If you can't make it to Buñol, where the annual festival takes place, join us to celebrate at aqua nueva and Downstairs at Carousel.

The day begins at 12:30pm where you'll enjoy a La Tomatina inspired menu including a Ketel One cocktail on arrival and three dishes from a set menu at aqua nueva. This is followed by a short walk over to our friends at Downstairs at Carousel in Marylebone. There you'll enjoy a Ketel One cocktail masterclass, a Ketel One Bloody Mary and you'll be given a poncho for the tomato throwing activities!

For the event, we're using ugly and unloved tomatoes, from The Tomato Stall, which may have otherwise gone to waste. When the event ends we'll donate the tomatoes to Veolia and Anaerobic Digestion plant. Tickets are priced at £49 per guest with VAT and service included. See the full menu, house rules and tips for the event below.
