Rock'n roll concertWith apologies to the late, great Robin Williams in “Good Morning Vietnam”: "Goooooooood Morning, Algarve! Hey, this is not a test, this is rock 'n' roll!"

And, yes, as his character, DJ Adrian Cronauer goes on to say, it IS time to rock it from the Delta to the DMZ…!
Or, more appropriately, from the Guadiana to the Cape, the Spanish border to Cape St Vincent as 50s rock ‘n’ roll comes to the Algarve in its rawest, purest form.

Homage to PicassoVale do Lobo will feature a bold collection of vibrant paintings from the acclaimed Portuguese artist Gervásio during an exhibition from 2nd September until 3rd November.

Carlos Gervásio, known usually simply as Gervásio, was born in 1972 in Monchique in the Algarve and from an early age he discovered that painting was to be not only an essential part of his life but his full time occupation.
