Aug 25 2018 12:30 - 16:00


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 on Saturday 25th August to celebrate at aqua nueva and Downstairs at Carousel.

The day begins at 12:30pm where you'll enjoy a menu created by our Head Chef, Yahir Gonzalez, 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 which may have otherwise gone to waste. When the event ends we'll donate the tomatoes to a compost facility where they will be used to grow more fruit and veg.

Tickets are priced at £49 per guest with VAT and service included. See the full menu, house rules and tips for the event below.

If you don't want to join us at aqua nueva for lunch we also have tickets available for £20 per guest where you can join us at Downstairs at Carousel from 2:00pm which include the Bloody Mary Masterclass, a cocktail and the tomato fight. Click on 'Get Tickets' above for more information.
