Gibraltar’s first ever fringe festival opens this Thursday and will see four days of performances and workshops by local and visiting performers, like never before brought together on the Rock, coinciding with the festive mood of the Calentita weekend.
Performances open at the Alameda Open Air Theatre on Thursday, and run through till Sunday. There are performances for all tastes, by local and visiting artistes. They will include classical guitar, piano, music and projected experiences, clowns (including the popular “Bombero”), dance (including Gibraltar’s own Danza Academy and Japanese Butoh Dance), dance drama as well as a performance by Metro Hotel and the release of a folk rock album by Gareth Owen.
The Government has today announced that it has published a revised version of the Gibraltar Environmental Action And Management Plan (EAMP). The document will serve as a blueprint for the Government’s environmental policy and reflects the commitments and policy goals of the Government for the coming years.
The plan has gone out to consultation with all Government departments and environmental NGOs to ensure that it encompasses the views of all those who will be working to ensure its delivery.
Summer is upon and Santos Productions are preparing a production “Kids Rock…The Concert”. This show is a follow up to their successful musical play “Kids Rock” in 2011. This time it is just a concert featuring the latest pop hits and some older classics we all love. It also features the Santos Productions Choir who will be presenting the pieces they will be competing with at the European Choir Games in Graz, Austria. This choir has become very popular in the past few years having performed at the GFA UEFA Celebrations, the May Day Celebrations and the Diamond Jubilee Variety Show.
