What's On Newsletter 10th February 2019
The Carnivals normally start this weekend, but as Easter is very late this year they will not begin until the end of February. However there are still many exciting events and fiestas to enjoy, including the opportunity to visit 3 Spanish Navy Ships for free in Santa Pola.
There are only a few places left for our 2 Night Coach Tour to the Fabulous Fallas in Valencia from the 18th to the 20th March for 142,50€ per person. We have just added the Carnival Parade Coach Tour to Cabezo de Torres on Shrove Tuesday, the 5th March, as well as the Easter Coach Tours. We will be enjoying the Drums in Mula on Good Friday and the Hallelujah Parade in Elche on Easter Sunday. There is also the Music from Films Symphonic Concert in April, and a 1 Night Coach Tour to the City of Valencia which includes a visit to the Lladro Museum in May. Bookings are being taken for Elche CF v Oviedo on the 9th and Extremadura on the 16th, both in February. Click here for all the information and to book.
