„Der Paul war der Dolmetscher bei einem Choraustaustasch zwischen den St. Nicholas Singers aus Northwich, UK und unserem Kinderchor, den „Kolibris“, hier in Koblenz, Deutschland. Ohne ihn hätten wir es nicht geschafft! Er war fleiβig, sympathisch und sehr effektiv.“
Ulrich De Waal, Chorleiter, Koblenz-Pfaffendorf, Germany, April 1976

Wednesday, 01 December 2010 22:00

As we enter December there are a number of events scheduled in Ronda to coincide with the first weekend of the month and the bank holidays on Monday 6th December (Día de la Constitución) and Wednesday 8th (Inmaculada Concepción) and the puente on Tuesday 7th.

  • If you’re a flamenco fan, hurry along to the Peña Flamenca, C/ Dolores Ibárruri, 8 at 10 pm on Friday 3rd December for a recital by Curro Lucena, with Ángel Mata on guitar.  Entrance is free.
  • A little earlier that evening, at 7 pm on Carrer Espinel (Calle La Bola) is the official “switching on” of the Christmas Lights.
  • From 3rd – 6th December there will be a Medieval Market in the Casco Antiguo (Ronda’s Old Part) with  processions, firework displays and demonstrations by artesans and craftspeople.
  • From  4th – 8th December at the Círculo de Artistas in the Casino in Plaza del Socorro there will be a traditional “Rastrillo Navideño” (Christmas Market).  Open from 10 am to 10 pm each day, the Rastrillo will feature local products, musical interludes and a bar.
  • From 3rd – 19th December the annual Feria del Libro with antique, second-hand and bargain books, will be in Plaza del Socorro.
  • On Sunday 5th December there is the regular exhibition and sale of art and sculpture on Paseo Blas Infante (if it is raining, in the Convento de Santo Domingo). Called “Forma y Color en la Plaza. Mercadillo de Arte” it’s from 11 am until 3 pm.
  • On Thursday 9th December at 7.30 pm in the Círculo de Artistas is the opening of an exhibition of ceramics and paintings by foreign artists living in the Ronda area. Entitled “Fuego y Barro” (Fire and Mud) it features the work of Miki and Maris Polin, Diana Lee and Jessica Rutherford.

So, plenty of activities on offer for us all to enjoy, and all of them free of charge.
