‘Bless you, Blue Elephant.’ That’s what Buddhist monks from Wimbledon’s Buddhapadipa Temple will be saying on 11 May (or words to that effect), when they perform a traditional blessing ceremony at the restaurant’s new riverside home. The blessing, which starts at 10am, is open to the public and will provide a rare opportunity to witness a traditional Buddhist rite. Afterwards, the celebrations will continue with a free party for friends and fans of the acclaimed restaurant, with Thai nibbles and exotic drinks. No need to book, just turn up and pay your own respects.
