One For The Kids- Rock Cirk: Christmas and the New Year are the times for circus but the Teatro Cervantes in Malaga City has a very special one aimed at younger audiences entitled Rock Cirk.
This show which is presented by just five musicians and acrobats combines rock music with agility, acrobatics and fun so for just under an hour, audiences can enjoy a really exciting show which combines expertise from two quite different areas.
It’s presented by the Malaga based Rolabola Theatre Group which won the National Circus Award 2017 and has created a number of original shows over its lifetime.
The show starts at 6pm on January 4 and tickets cost just €9 from the theatre box office, so for a fun day out just before the Three Kings arrive, Rock Cirk may a great option.


Migas Day: Benajarafe is set to celebrate the twelfth edition of the ‘Migas Day’ on Sunday, December 15; an event in which residents and visitors come together to enjoy the traditional dish of La Axarquia. The activities will begin at 12.30 pm on Sunday, with the opening of the courtyard of the Church, where most of the activities will be held. Then, attendees can enjoy the performance of the local Dance Academy ‘Tacones al aire’, the ‘Pastoral Del Mar’ and the ‘Pastoral El Chorro’. At 2.30 pm the serving of migas will begin with the symbolic contribution of only one euro. From 4 pm. the performances of the ‘La Tinaja’ Benojarafe Rociero Choir, the ‘Pastoral Río Granadilla’ and finally the ‘Los Pastoral Los de Torremoya’ will take place.
