  Carol Concert To Coincide With International Mass
The overwhelming success of previous Christmas’s ‘Carols in English’ concert, the singing of Christmas Carols in the main town square by members of various local choral groups accompanied by a band of talented musicians, has resulted in the fact that this popular event seems to have become a permanent fixture on Torrevieja’s Christmas cultural programme!
   
  ‘The Boss’ is Back
The hottest ticket so far for 2008 is for the return to Spain of Bruce Springsteen, who plays the Camp Nou, Barcelona on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th July. The Saturday gig was sold out last week within 8 hours which prompted the addition of the extra date on 20th, for which tickets go on sale at 10am today ,Tuesday 4th December, via www.ticktackticket.com. or call 902 150 025.
   
  A Musical Evening
‘A Musical Evening’ presented by Campoverde Church was a plum pudding of an evening stuffed with good things; with two choral groups, one band, and one dance troupe contributing their services, with everything served up at the recently refurbished Casa de Cultura in Pilar de la Horadada. 
   
  The Torrevieja Show Group
Back in Augustus Caesars reign, when pantomime was first invented only one actor played all the parts. Luckily today The Torrevieja Show Group have many talented performers and this year bring you ‘Jack and the Beanstalk.’ 
   
  Medieval Market in Ondara
10 – 11th November 11am to 8pm Ondara holds its annual fair each year on the last three weekends of November, complete with a glitzy fairground and various other less showy but perhaps more interesting attractions. Thus, for the tenth year in succession, a Medieval Market will be held on the first weekend of the ‘Fira d’Ondara.’ This year will be the first time the Market includes a miniature animal farm, a display of the arms used by knights and an acrobat duo called ‘Patas Arriba.’ Coloured flags and bunting decorate the streets to create a festive medieval atmosphere, which is enhanced by medieval minstrels, accompanied by beggars, pages, soldiers, courtiers and a stiltwalker, all mixing with the motley crowd. This year the falconer will be absent, but there will be a pen with cuddly farm animals with a mother donkey and her foal, sheep, rabbits and chickens. For the very young there will be donkey rides and for older children (and younger adults?) a corner where they can learn the basics of juggling. The market is organised, as always, by Amata, the same regional craft association that is in charge of the Medieval Markets in Denia, Benissa, Torrevieja and Oliva. The people on the stalls are carefully selected for the quality of their work and presentation. They will have used materials such as ceramics, wood, glass, leather, silk, wool, silver, copper, beeswax, natural stone etc. Wherever possible the people on the stall will be at work - at a small table to the side of the stall or in a special workshop, like Miguel the blacksmith.  Raquel demonstrates how to make paper and even allows you to try for yourself. Antje brings her Angora rabbits along and sits at her stall while she spins the wool.    Of course, the inner man and woman has not been forgotten. Cheese, sausages, bread, pastry and preserved fruit, all prepared using medieval recipes, are to be found in the food sector, where can also be found a tavern and an Arab tea tent. At intervals of about an hour there are performances by a brother and sister acrobatic team from Moldavia called Patas Arriba which literally means ‘feet on top’ but which the Spanish use to indicate a real shambles. You can watch feats of skill such as tumbling, balancing high in the air, the comic fight of the dwarves and the act with the hula hoops.  Each evening is closed off with a fire show given by the juggler. The market is open continuously on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 November from 11am to 8pm, although there are no shows between 2pm and 5pm. The fairground will be built up on the town’s industrial estate and the Medieval Market immediately next to it in the residential area Avda. de la Constitución. To find the Market, follow the green arrows marked ‘Mercat Medieval’ from the main access roads in Ondara. For more information (in English) ring 639 979 678.  In case the weather is so bad that the market cannot continue, Amata will immediately post an announcement on its web site www.amata.es .
