This summer, the Automobile Museum in Malaga has put together an ample programme of fun activities for all the family. Throughout July and August, visitors to this impressive museum will be able to get out of the hot sun for a few hours and dive into a fabulous world full of art, fashion, design and, of course, the most exclusive selection of cars.
We are regular exhibitors at the popular Over 50’s Shows in Dublin and Belfast; however, this year we’ve decided to increase our exposure by also attending the 50 plus Travel Show being held at the London Olympia next week (11th to the 13th July, 2013).
The 50 Plus Travel Show is part of the 50 Plus Show, the largest exhibition in the UK specifically for mature visitors. It’s the ideal place to find out all the fantastic travel opportunities for mature travellers: Expeditions, adventure travel, weekend breaks, cruises, winter breaks, group travel…you name it, they’ve got it!
For the 7th year running (from the 5th to 7th July) this fantastic festival, organised by ‘Aint Nothin’ But…’ and the Mijas Town Hall Foreigner’s Department, will once again provide 3 days of the best Blues music; and all for FREE!
This year the whole festival will be held in the main ‘Plaza’ and visitors will also be able to enjoy lots of delicious food and drink in the many bars and restaurants surrounding the square (that part isn’t free though )
During July, August and September, the Dinosaurios Park exhibition will be located in the main car park of the Torremolinos Exhibition Centre and will provide both entertainment and education for children and parents alike.
An enormous 12 metre tall brachiosaurus will welcome you upon arrival at the exhibition and once inside, you’ll be taken on a fascinating trip into the world of the dinosaurs. There are more than 50 replicas of dinosaurs, many of which are life size!
Here’s a quick summary of what you’ll find at the Dinosaurios Park:
- Life size Dinosaur fossils
- Mechanical dinosaurs which come to life with their unique movements and sounds.
- Realistic scenes that take you back to the dinosaur age.
- Replicas of dinosaurs that reach 12m in height!
- The chance to become a palaeontologist for a day by looking for fossils.
- And lots more…
Have you ever visited Antequera? If not, you should definitely consider adding it to your list of ‘places to visit’ as it’s probably one of the most overlooked attractions in Andalucia.
This summer you’ll have the perfect excuse as the Antequera Town Hall will be running a special campaign called ‘Luz de Luna’ (‘Moonlight’). This unique initiative consists of a series of night visits – in English and Spanish – which will take you to some of the most iconic landmarks in the area; a great idea as visiting this beautiful part of Andalucia during the day and having to deal with the extreme heat is probably not a good idea

As we approach the busy summer season, we’ve decided to put together our – now regular – list of the top concerts on the Costa del Sol for this summer 2013. There are some fantastic musicians and entertainers performing live at various venues along the Coast; however, this year, one event stands out from the rest: The Starlite Festival in Marbella.
After the success of last year’s series of concerts in the concert arena located in the Nagueles quarry, the organisers have lined up an even more impressive list of top international and Spanish artists including Julio Iglesias, Jamie Cullum, Bryan Adams, Paco de Lucía, UB40 and Alejandro Sanz. The Starlite Festival will run from the 23rd July to the 24th August and you can see the schedule for the concerts below.
This coming Thursday the 6th June – and until the 16th June – Benalmadena Marina will host its 1st Beer Festival.
This fun concept has been extremely successful in other towns along the Costa del Sol and now it’s finally coming to Benalmadena!
This Beer Festival will bring together the essence of the world famous Oktoberfest celebrations and the hospitality of Benalmadena and its citizens. Anyone who visits the festival will have the opportunity to sample more than 20 different beers from Germany and other parts of the world; and we mustn’t forget the delicious and typical German foods on offer… Roast pork, a wide variety of sausages, sauerkraut and pretzels to name but a few!
