Torrevieja town hall has launched their latest cultural calendar, offering a total of 277 activities in October, November and December, including a range of concerts, workshops, theatre, music and competitions.
The Councillor for Culture, Luis María Pizana, along with the coordinator of the Municipal Institute of Culture, Manuel Esteban, presented the timetable of events this week, with a total budget of 29,621 euro.
Some of the highlights as the nights get darker are 68 musical concerts, 20 workshops, 18 plays, 11 conferences, ten musical, including a whole one in English, galas, workshops, exhibitions, children’s parades, contests, film, ballet and dance , amongst others.
Pizana stressed the commitment of the town hall for a schedule of “quality”, with a variety of cultural activities from all genres for all segments, tastes and groups, and encouraging the promotion of actions and representations of the musical associations and cultural institutions of the city.
One of the most eagerly awaited highlights of the agenda is “Grease, the Musical”, with a total of 7 shows between the 17th and 20th of October at the Municipal Theatre, although with tickets at 45 euro it may be a little out of most family´s budget range.
The program begins this next week with the controversial celebration of Arabic Dance, which met with criticism after it was revealed that the town hall was favouring hotels outside their own municipality. The very popular book fair returns on the Paseo de La Libertad until the 20th of October. There is a children´s theatre show starting on Saturday at the Municipal Theatre, and the celebrations of both the Día de la Comunidad Valenciana and the Fiesta Nacional de España, on the 9th and the 12th of October respectively.
