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.


Bruce Springsteen Tribute: Sat 18 Jan. Doors 21:30 Show 22:00. €10.
The Hall, C/ Heroe de Sostoa 63-65 Malaga Reservations: 633647260

Why workers in Spain have a legal right to a Christmas hamper: The tradition of giving workers a ‘cesta’ to take home at Christmas is long established in Spain.
