New Orleans Jazz Band Back in Tavira!I am delighted that NOJB are returning to to play for us in Tavira on Saturday 27 January at 6 pm at the Beira Rio Restaurant - a favourite haunt of the Band. The restaurant provides a large space to dance as well as providing a buffet supper.

The New Orleans Jazz Band was formed in 1998 by a group of international jazz musicians, all now living in the Algarve. The band's current line up comprises Ray Charsley (trumpet/vocals), Dave Lawson (clarinet/saxophones), John Ballinger (trombone/vocals), Cory Sea (guitar), Luís Hilário (double bass) and Tony Scriven (drums/leader/vocals). The musicians play a mixture of blues, stomps, marches, spirituals and ragtime. They will be playing three 50-minute sets, which will include the now obligatory Umbrella Parade. So don´t forget your brollies - there will be a prize for the fanciest one.

January: Music in the Eastern AlgarveThis month, Algarve History Association hosts three different music events. We start on Friday 19 at 7 pm at the Casa de Povo in Moncarapacho. Here the international violin virtuoso Édua Zadory will be improvising to a range of works of art. Last year she played to a crammed audience in Tavira, winning everyone´s hearts with her range of emotion played out on the violin. She will later be joined by guitarist and Bob Dylan fan, André Viane (aka Boris Buggerov). Last year at Quintinha da Música they jammed together for the first time.

TaviraPeter has devised three areas for Historical Walks in Tavira. The first (10 January) covers the walled town on the hill, and includes the Roman Bridge, the Câmara building the castle and the walls. He discusses the churches and religious buildings within the walls and finishes the tour at the riverside.

Nobel International Schools host their annual Christmas nativity showsThe Nobel International School Lagoa and Lagos primary sections performed their annual festive performances in the last week of term. 

Lagoa Years 1-6 performed "Christmas Wishes", written by Pennie Best, a play about toys that children wish for and the nativity at the end.
Lagos Pre-School-Year 6 did "A Midwife Crisis", a play written by Gaynor Boddy and Rebecca Kincaid.

CERN student visitA group of 16 senior students and two teachers from Nobel International School Algarve visited CERN in Switzerland in November as part of the CERN Educational Program 2017.

CERN is the world´s largest and most complex scientific laboratory and values its interaction with students. This Educational Program welcomes students each year to learn more about CERN, the origins of the Universe, the basic constituents of matter and the fundamental laws of nature.
