During 6 weeks every year, Swedes celebrate the crayfish season by eating loads of crayfish, drinking schnapps and singing songs! It’s a bit like an extension of our Midsummer celebrations, minus the Maypole! We call it Kräftskiva!
LondonSwedes have hosted popular Crayfish parties since 2012 and this year we are hosting them on the 31st August and Saturday the 1st of September!
Pick your date and come down to this large venue located just by the river by Paddington station and with outside space for 100 guests (and inside for another 200).
We have, as always, hired the whole venue and it will be an authentic Swedish Crayfish party with everything that it has to offer. You can even take a boat to the venue… 😉
Friday 31st August 6pm – Midnight
Saturday 1st September Crayfish Lunch 1pm – 5pm
Saturday 1st September Crayfish Dinner 7pm – Midnight
Each event takes max 300 guests.
