What's On Newsletter 26th January 2020
Brighten up the end of January by joining us for the Cuadrillas Folk Festival on Sunday. A number of local musicians and dancers take to the streets and compete against each other in the hope that they will win this years 'best band'. We follow this with a typical 3 course Menu Fin de Semana, all for 29€.
There are some great concerts coming up; Simon and Garfunkle Tribute Band’s World Tour Concert in Valencia including a 4* hotel for 99€, the amazing uplifting voices of Joyful singing a selection of cover songs in English, the Darkness UK Soft Rock Band European Tour Concert on the 31st January and Coach Only going to the Sting Concert in Murcia at the end of July.
Make sure you don’t miss out on this years ‘bucket list’ Fallas Fiesta in Valencia at the end of March. We see the Flower Parade, the Mascletas, the Dressing of the Virgen’s Cloak, the Fallas by day and by night, the Illuminated Streets, the Fire Parade, the Nit de Foc (one of the biggest firework displays in Spain) and of course the Burning. All this for 215€ per person with 3 nights BB hotel just 20km out of Valencia, coach transfers into and out of Valencia and of course the EuroTourGuide maps and information, so you miss nothing.
Our monthly Special Coach Tours have been added for February, March, April and May and are to the Almond Blossom, Peach Blossom, Flower Parade and Wine Horses. Elche CF will be playing Malaga on the 1st February and there is the AP Tennis Open in Madrid in May and Spanish Open Golf in Madrid in October.
