Saturday 24 September:
A big event in aid of the refugees in Greece that will take place mainly in the plaza. This has been organised by Maria Rosa Penarroya, who many of you may know has lived in GAUCIN for 15 years and who went to Greece as a volunteer in April. The aim is to raise money for a charity called Himaya and you can find more information on their website 

The event starts at 12:30 with a procession by the village band from Paseo Ana Toval  towards the plaza. Then from 1:30pm there will be a performance by dancers from the village, bingo and Paella.  At 5pm Paloma will sing and play piano, followed by family entertainment at 6:30pm, flamenco at 8pm, hip hop fusion at 9:30pm and finally Biagra will be playing at 11pm. It does promise to offer entertainment for all tastes and may be the last big event for a while so let's all try and give some support.

Benefit 2
Monday 05 September - evening of folk music from Romania and Columbia, Plaza del Santo Niño, 21:30hrs.
