A BRAND new theatre and cultural event venue has opened its doors in Los Gallardos.
Los Gallardos Mayor Francisco Reyes and Diputacion de Almeria Sport and Youth deputy Maria Luisa Cruz cut the ribbon on the facilities at the official inauguration ceremony on Thursday in front of a large crowd of local residents.
“We understand culture as something essential for the human condition, therefore, this council wants to make culture a sign of identity and a reference for daily work as backing culture is to back our town’s present and future”, the Mayor commented.
Reyes promised a programme of events designed to appeal to all residents, also making the point the venue will be a visitor attraction.
He took time to thank his local government team and the provincial administration for their work and for making the project possible. He also made special mention of the Los Gallardos theatre groups, the municipal band and choir, and the different local associations “for their contribution to culture.”
The Diputacion de Almeria provided a €755,000 investment for the new venue, which has capacity for 200 spectators. One of the most notable features of the facilities is that the stage can also connect with the exterior so it can be used for open-air events.
The provincial administration funding also covered works on the area surrounding the venue, including creating parking areas and gardens, and connecting it to the rest of the municipality.
The Diputacion said the facilities were destined to become “the cultural epicentre of the municipality”, adding that investments of this kind reflected the administration’s policy of equality of service among the province’s municipalities and efforts to combat depopulation in smaller, inland localities.
Events and activities at the new facilities gets underway today Friday.
