Culture
 
  Denia Concerts
The town hall of Denia has organised ‘Musica al Convent de les Agustines’, a concert that will take place on the last Friday of every month from now until April, travelling through the musical ages, from the 16th centaury to modern day music.
   
  San Fulgencio Fiestas
San Fulgencio is this week celebrating its fiestas in honour of its patron saint of the same name, and its co-patron, San Antonio Abad. They are fiestas that have a strong religious touch, with processions on 16th and 17th January to honour the saints and the blessings of animals and the bread on San Antón.But there are also popular and traditional customs of these fiestas that are not so religious, such as the ‘recogida de la gallina’ (the collecting of the chicken) on 16th January, in which members of the local authorities run through the town accompanied by a marching band and those that want to offer them an animal. The fiestas finish on Saturday 20th January with the traditional Feast of the Brotherhood, where all the townsfolk meet up in the El Oasis parish, to share a meal.

  Celtic Medieval Market
The craft association Amata is holding its first Celtic Medieval Market in Benissa, on January 27th and 28th. Amata has organised medieval markets in Benissa the last three years, but this time the Town Hall wanted something just a little different, hence a Celtic Medieval Market. Around the day of Saint Anthony (17 January) Benissa celebrates its ‘Fira i Porrat de Sant Antoni’ on three consecutive weekends. On the last of these weekends, this year on January 27th and 28th, a medieval market is held in the Calle Puríssima and the Plaza de la Iglesia Vieja, near the Town Hall (clearly signposted with ‘Mercat Medieval’ and with plenty of parking space nearby.) This year Benissa Town Hall wanted a Medieval Market with a difference - so it all gets to be Celtic.  With the help of the foreign press, Amata has found several Celts originating from the islands to the west of France (well, some are from Ireland) as well as Celts from northern Spain, who will enliven the event with bagpipes and a tin whistle, the singing of Irish ballads and a workshop on Celtic dancing.  Witches, druids and a friar with bell, book and cross will participate in an exorcism. Celtic minstrels, jesters and stilt walkers, ghosts and an extremely childish dwarf will complete the picture. The Amata Association is working hard to raise the general level of craftwork in the region and after ten years or so is beginning to see results.  At the market there will be some 80 or 90 stalls with all sorts of excellent craftwork and food. The visitor can examine and buy first class hand-made leatherwork, ceramics, woodwork, glass, fabrics, metalwork, jewellery - all made by the people behind the stall.  No imported craftwork from other countries and none of the mass-produced colour-by-number paintings you so often see in other markets.  You can also try some of the food, much of it made using recipes that go back to the middle ages - cheese, beer, cider, sausages, bread, pastry, dried and pressed fruit, and there are any number of places plying food and drink to the weary visitor, including an Arab tea tent and a medieval tavern. In the market you can watch two extremely interesting craftsmen at work. The cooper, one of the few surviving  members of the craft in Spain, will be making a barrel over the weekend, staves, hoops, ends and bung, and a Czech armourer will be showing how he makes the components of a suit of armour fit for any knight (no, not evening wear, it’s ‘knight’ not ‘night.’) Celtic music is played by a group called Cabraloca (the Mad Goat) from northern Spain as well as a duo called Celtic Storm, consisting of Steve, a kilted Irishman playing Scots bagpipes with his mate Mick who plays a tin whistle. Patricia Sharkey will sing Irish ballads and Sandra will run a workshop for anyone interested in learning to dance the traditional Irish dances.   Opening times on both days from 11 am till 8 pm. In case the weather is as bad as it was last year (let’s hope not), the market might be held in the following weekend.
