DUE to the inability of Torrevieja’s Pentapartido Town Council to organise the May Fair in a timely manner, The House of Andalusia, ‘Rafael Alberti’ of Torrevieja, have stepped in after receiving a request from the council.
The group have organised the fair for more than 25 years, and the next edition will have a slight change to the name and be known as the ‘Feria de Sevillanas’. It will be held in the port area from Wednesday May 4 to Sunday May 8.
On Sunday evening the poster for the new ‘Feria de Sevillanas’ was released at the official announcement, in the Virgen del Carmen theatre. The poster creator, Ana Isabel Lopez Martinez, received a plaque of appreciation from the President of the Casa de Andalucia, Rosa Martinez.
This year’s fair will feature many local dance schools, the Coro Jose Hodar and the Union Musical Torrevejense and a host of local artists. The five-day fair will also feature the traditional horses and carriages, and on Saturday Rociera Mass will be sung by the choir of the Brotherhood of Rocio of Torrevieja.
