Our plans for next season

We hope to be able to resume our normal practice of delivering the lectures in the Cultural Centre in Nerja.

This, of course, depends on many factors that are outside our control, and we won't know until much nearer the time what we will be able to do.

Although using Zoom is not perfect, it has allowed many people to participate in our lectures who would not otherwise have done so. Quite a few short-term winter visitors to Nerja, who normally attend lectures in person when they are in Nerja, have become members because they have been able to 'attend' all of the lectures from home.

We intend to continue with Zoom for at least the next season. In the ideal world we will be able to have the presentation in the Cultural Centre and, from there, stream it live using Zoom.

We start the season with the Flamenco video mentioned at the top of this page - follow the link to find out more and see the stunning trailer. This will be online for you to watch at home and - if conditions permit - will also be shown in the Cultural Centre.
