What’s on- Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar



What’s on- Formation of a Creative Circle in Mezquitilla:   Background: In the USA, they organized Sewing Circles, usually for a charitable cause.  Around WWII, some knitters groups were called ‘’Stitch and Bitch’’ sharing knitting related tips and also employing their busy hands for good causes. The Salons of Early Modern Revolutionary France played an integral role in the cultural and intellectual development of France.  The Salons gave the members ample opportunities for intellectual and social exchange…   Now in the Costa del Sol, Chiki Beach Club (Bio Restaurant) invites us to create our own circle.  Do you write or keep a journal?  Or maybe you want to try your hand at making a collage using treasures found at the beach??  Or do you like sketching seascapes? Or are you interested in starting a table of scrabble, dominoes, Mahjong, etc…  Or are you a knitter, writer, quilter, poet, painter or partaking in an Arts & Crafts activity??  Antonio invites us to organise our own Creative Oasis between 11am and 1pm monthly.  And speaking of an oasis, Antonio offers his spacious, sun-bathed and welcoming Bio-restaurant which can be our home away from home for those couple of hours.  Norma will be your contact and facilitator who, periodically, will present mini sessions in creative writing, memoirs writing and/or sewing, crochet, knitting for beginners.  This offer is open to adults willing to spend a couple of hours in the company of people with active minds and productive fingers.  We may not be able to solve the challenges of this world but we sure can develop friendly gatherings in the most exquisite beach bungalow in Andalucia.  Our first organisational meeting will be on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 11am.  Contact norma for more information and registration (free) at: norma2kk@aol.com.  We are looking forward to meeting you!!


What’s on – Jukebox Bandits                                                                                           Hi folks, Jukebox Bandits will be performing on the beach at Chiringuito Tropy, Caleta this coming Saturday 18 November from 1.00pm – 4.00pm. Kees de Leeuw will also be doing his “Rolling Stones thing”, not to be missed!    To reserve a table call 653 629 841 or 689 237 643.     Chiringuito Tropy is 100 metres east of the Marina in Caleta, great food and atmosphere.    Jukebox Bandits are: Rod Jones on keyboards, Ian Hayton on acoustic guitar, bass and vocals, Marshall Dixon on drums and percussion, Ken Peacock on saxophone and flute and Mitch France on guitars, banjo, mandolin and vocals.   They play an eclectic mix of pop, blues, rock and folk standards from Britain, America, Ireland and Spain. From BB King to The Dubliners, from Manu Chao to Jason Mraz. The music starts mellow (whilst people are eating), gradually picking up the tempo and culminating with the dance set including standards like Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”, REM’s “Losing My Religion” and The Mavericks’ “Dance the Night Away”.  For all future gigs, samples of our music and to join our mailing list go to: www.jukeboxbandits.com
