Día de los Muertos – the Mexican Day of the Dead at Avenue Campus

Day of the Dead

There has been an altar celebrating the Day of the Dead at the Avenue Campus at the University of Southampton each year for a number of years, and this year is no exception!

In Mexico, Día de los Muertos which, despite the name, celebrates life, is celebrated on 2nd November with a national holiday. You can find out about how Mexico City has been celebrating in this report on the Guardian website.

Over the two weeks that the altar is on display at the Avenue Campus, schools will be visiting to learn more about the tradition and learn some Spanish. The altar can be visited at Avenue Campus until 11th November.
