Are you aged over 65?

Would you appreciate practical tips, for example about living in Spain?

The activities are designed to help sharpen your memory, response time and logic skills. They will also provide you with practical information, for example about:
Using new technology like smartphones
Local Spanish culture and lifestyle
Living in Spain
If this sounds like it’s for you, or you know anyone who would benefit from this, please get in touch.
We can coordinate lift sharing or, under certain circumstances, we may be able to provide transport if it would otherwise be a barrier to attendance.

John Illsley of Dire Straits: Wednesday 9th October at Paris 15, Calle la Orotava, Malága. As one of the founding band members, with guitarist brothers Mark and David Knopfler, and drummer Pick Withers, Illsley played a role in the development of Dire Straits’ sound. By the time the group disbanded in 1995 changes in personnel meant that Illsley and lead singer Mark Knopfler were the only two original band members remaining. Illsley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Dire Straits in 2018.
Illsley has produced two albums of his own, with Mark Knopfler as a guest musician, and has helped with Mark’s personal projects and charities.
John will be appearing with his own band with guitarist Robbie McIntosh (The Pretenders, Paul McCartney John Mayer), he will be playing Dire Straits classics as well as songs from his latest solo album, ‘Long shadows’. Info&Tix
