It’s mid August, and as per usual the town hall has made sure that there are plenty of interesting and fun things to do this summer. Here is a quick run down of what is happening by date:
13 August: Salobreña’s Theatrical Group will be putting on a comedy called Lisistrata de Aristófanes. This will be an all Spanish production so understanding Spanish is a must. The play will be staged at the Auditorium, which is right next to the Ayuntamiento. Time is 10Pm and the cost of a ticket is 3€.
14 August: It’s the annual Blues Concert in La Caleta. This is a great night out, it’s free and the music is usually top notch. The stage has been set up in the little square down by the water. Plaza del Lavadero. Try not to miss this, it’s always a great night plus the two bars in the town will be hopping and I can almost guarantee the party will be going on till the wee hours.. Get there if you can.
