SOUPS OF THE WORLD FESTIVAL, 11 HOURS OF MUSIC, AND ST. PATRICK´S DAY
It seems like it´s going to be another cold and wet weekend (hopefully the last one for this season!)
Fortunately, we have some great recommendations that fit in very nicely with cold and wet weather.
The 10th annual “Festival de Sopas del Mundo” is taking place on Sunday the 17th on the marquee of Via Julia after 12h00. Besides having the opportunity to taste hot, tasty soups from all over the world, there will also be activities for the young ones, and some Blues music, courtesy of “Los Combos” from the “Escuela de Blues”. You are invited to bring some homemade soup from your own country of origin. There will be some hotplates made available for you to keep it warm. The idea behind the initiative is to bring communities closer together, and is initiated by Xarxa 9 Barris Acull. (See their website here)
11 HOURS OF MUSIC:
The Conservatori Municipal de Música de Bareclona is hosting musical performances that include classical instruments such as Violins, accordions, harps, flutes, piano and many more. It will take place on Saturday 16 March, on Calle Bruc 110-112 (at the conservatory) and will start at 11:00 and finish at 23:00. More information and the program can be found on the website.
ST. PATRICK´s DAY:
Celebrated pretty much all over the world, this originally Irish day will be celebrated with music and dancing of Celtic origin, not to mention the authentic Irish pipers parading with their bagpipes and the live coverage of the top matches of the Six Nations Rugby tournament. Traditionally it is celebrated on 17th of March, although on Saturday the 16th for the young ones there will be face-painting and storytelling of Celtic mythology. The place to be will be Calle Diagonal with Numancia (a pedestrian zone). For the adults, there will be the wide variety of traditional Irish pubs across Barcelona, whom will all be proudly celebrating this great day.
