SHOWS are going on in Vera this summer, with a complete cultural programme of free events lined up for the coming months.
There is music, magic, theatre, dance, storytelling, puppet shows and circus in different outdoor venues like the Plaza Mayor in Vera town and the seafront promenade.
The council said this allowed for compliance with health authority recommendations on preventing the spread of Covid-19 while at the same time makes the most of the summer weather.
Commenting at the cultural schedule presentation on Friday, Vera mayor Jose Carmelo Jorge Blanco said it has been designed for “all tastes and ages, with the intention of being another leisure option for the summer nights.”
Culture councillor Maria Manuela Caparros and Festivities councillor Amparo Garcia described the summer season as an opportunity to “regain the confidence of people in public gatherings, in enjoying open-air leisure, in tourism and in finding a haven in Vera as a safe destination, dynamic and peaceful at the same time, lively, active and with a defined cultural stamp.”
The Culture councillor also called on the public to behave responsibly, stressing the importance of “respecting maximum limits on capacity, following hygiene, safety and social distancing recommendations, and above all, applying a lot of common sense.”
