Global Celebrate Songkran With Tourism Thailand

Get Wet, Its Thai New Year!
Celebrate Songkran with Tourism Thailand in London

Thursday 12th April 2012
12:00 - 20:00
St Martins Courtyard, Covent Garden, London, WC2E

Entry is free.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is excited to invite you to join them in celebrating 'Songkran' - Thai New Year!

A week long, water filled event in Thailand, we promise to bring you a taste of Thai New Year fun in one day in the heart of London. St Martins Courtyard will be transformed into Thailand, beautifully decorated with lanterns and water themed features including traditional blessings.

You will experience a truly Thai welcome, colourful entertainment, relaxing spa massages and of course there will be plenty of delicious Thai food and drink including street food carts selling snacks with special thanks to SUDA Thai restaurant and a beach bar where you can sample Thailand's very own refreshing beers, Chang and Singha.

Plus, there is a chance to WIN a holiday for two to Thailand!

The History of Songkran: Songkran festival takes place in cities and villages across Thailand from the 13th - 15trh April each year and is a water filled, fun packed national event that commemorates the important role of water in Thai social, cultural and spiritual life. Songkran is celebrated during the peak of the summer heat wave in Thailand and traditional festivities include the bathing of Buddha images carried out at temples and homes across the country and children sprinkle water on their elders to pay respect.

More modern celebrations have developed into large scale water fights from gardens and parks to busy streets and even from tuk-tuks as you make your way about the city. Visitors to Thailand are encouraged, and very welcome, to join in the fun with locals so if you are travelling to Thailand in April be sure to get involved and get soaked!
