Spring Fair

The annual Amigos Spring Fair is being held on Sunday 5 May from 11:00 to 17:00h and entrance is free.

This is one of our many inter-cultural events that embrace the foreign communities living in São Bras de Alportel and its parishes, giving them the opportunity to get acquainted with local traditions and customs. There will be different international snacks on offer as well as Persian sweets, delicious cakes, jams and marmalade, German and other types of bread, aromatic oils and spices, special teas and much more for our gastronomes. 

Besides food, hand-painted English postcards, Dutch, English and German books and paintings, typical Portuguese art and handicrafts, pottery and ceramics, jewelry, flowers, herbs and plants, exclusive designer fashions and lots more attractive and interesting items will be on sale on the many stalls surrounding the lawns and in the galleries.

As in past years, we will have a corner for helping raise some much needed funds for the abandoned dogs, pups and kittens of Sao Bras. Visit the Tombola stall that also has second hand books and handicrafts. All proceeds to help neutering and re-homing.

For refreshments, the bar, café and food stalls are open all day.

We invite you to come along and bring your friends, family and guests to share a wonderful day in the unique atmosphere of the Museum gardens.

Aperitivo Performance Group presents: Murder in the Choir

How many sopranos does it take to change a lightbulb? Two. One to screw it in and the other to say - Isn’t that a little high for you?

A choir is a bit like a swan swimming: calm and beautiful on the surface, but kicking like mad underneath.
Sopranos know they are the most important element in a choir, as they carry the melody. There are always lots of Sopranos.
Altos despise Sopranos because they know that their part is much more difficult.
Tenors are always the smallest group in a choir because few men can reach the high notes, so tenors believe they are the elite.
Basses despise Tenors because it is much more macho to sing bass.
The Maestro despises them all because he is in charge but they never watch him.

It is almost surprising that in Aperitivo’s Murder in the Choir there is only one corpse.

In this latest, possibly the funniest - definitely the bitchiest, presentation by Aperitivo, once again we are back in the library of the little village of Thraxton, with the polished Miss Prunes, aided (whether she wants it or not) by perky Miss Prodnose, helping Sergeant Singer and his new sidekick Constable Snuff to discover the murderer. Only this time, Miss Prunes herself is one of the suspects!
