Opening of Art Exhibition - Sept 9thAt the opening of a new exhibition last weekend, artists Barbara Mountford and Greg MacDonald were introduced by Emanuel Sancho, the Director of Museu do Trajo in São Bras. Complimenting the eclectic mix of subjects and painting styles, an unusual aspect of the exhibition is the relationship between the two artists.

The AlgarveansFollowing the success of their 25th anniversary show Pollen: The Musical, in Autumn 2016, The Algarveans Experimental Theatre Group have selected an amazing show for this autumn’s production at Lagoa Auditorium namely Kindertransport by Diane Samuels.

Kindertransport was a plan, formed in 1938 in reaction to Kristallnacht and the rising Nazi threat, to evacuate children from Germany and Eastern Europe. Before World War II erupted nearly 10,000 youngsters, most of them Jewish, had made it to England. This show approaches the subject from the unusual perspective of a child, who escaped the immediate horrors but paid a heavy price anyway.

paintbrushesAn exhibition of paintings on canvas with the theme the Blues has been organised by the Friends of the Museum of São Brás in partnership with the International Association of Art and the Peace and Art Society, which have developed the Blues project for painting on canvas.

Participating artists, of various nationalities, are creating works of art that represent a comprehensive overview of Blues music and its influence on the world in which we live.

Father Mark Wilson; Angela Kean, Father Rob Kean, Padre Ze ManuelSt Vincent’s Church, Praia da Luz is flourishing. Despite over two years of interregnum our church family continues to grow. So it was with great joy we celebrated the licensing of our new permanent priest, Father Robert (Rob) Kean.

The service was led by the Archdeacon of Gibraltar, The Reverend Canon Geoffrey Johnston, with Father Mark Wilson, Chaplain of our Central and Eastern congregations, Reader Bob Kelly and Padre Zé Manuel, Roman Catholic priest in Luz, in attendance. Father Geoff said it was indeed a day for celebration and joy at the new ministry of Father Rob and reminded us that Jesus enjoyed a celebration: his first miracle was turning water into wine at a wedding in Cana.

'Kindertransport' - Get involved in the Algarveans next productionThe Algarveans Experimental Theatre group’s choice of play for the autumn production has frequently been in the top 10 most-performed productions by amateur theatre groups in recent years. 

Kindertransport by Diane Samuels tells the story of a young German Jewish girl, Eva, who is sent by her parents on the Kindertransport to start a new life with a foster family in Britain just before the outbreak of World War II. Over forty years later she has changed her name to Evelyn and denied her roots but when her own daughter discovers some old letters and photos in the attic, Eva is forced to confront the truth about who she really is and reveal a dark secret that she has done everything to keep hidden.
