'Monomatapa and King Solomon's Mines – ancient gold mining in Africa' - Algarve Archaeological Association talk, 5th DecOn Tuesday 5th December, the Algarve Archaeological Association (AAA) will be presenting two lectures, in English, by Pete Siegfried. The first lecture will be at 2.30pm at the Museu do Traje in São Bras, the second lecture will be at 5.45pm at the Convento de São José in Lagoa.
Pete Siegfried will be talking about the history of gold mining in Africa with particular reference to Monomatapa and King Solomon's mines.

Karen Barroso and Ria Cowley“We are nearly there but the last few days before the first performance are always busy and fraught,” said director Chris Winstanley of The Algarveans Experimental Theatre Group

He was talking about Kindertransport, by Diane Samuels, which is this autumn’s production from The Algarveans, a theatre group that has been putting on English-speaking productions for over 25 years.

Algarve St Andrew's Ball 2017 - Nov 25thThe Saint Andrew’s Society of the Algarve is a small group of Scots and other nationalities whose main aim is to promote things Scottish, but also to enjoy ourselves.

We will be having our annual Saint Andrews Ball on Saturday 25 November. Once again it will be at the marvellous Penina Hotel, which always looks after us so very well. Participants will be greeted by the skirl of the pipes from 7 pm played by our wonderful piper Malcolm MacGillivray. Following a champagne reception there will be a bounteous and sumptuous buffet accompanied by wine, followed by coffee and Atholl Brose.

Diane Samuels' KINDERTRANSPORT opens November 23rdIn two weeks The Algarveans will be preparing for the opening night of Kindertransport. In the unlikely event that you have not read anything about the play below a synopsis but without giving anything away.

Kindertransport was a plan, formed in 1938 in reaction to Kristallnacht and the rising Nazi threat, to evacuate children from Germany and Eastern Europe. Before World War II erupted nearly 10,000 youngsters, most of them Jewish, had made it to England. This show approaches the subject from the unusual perspective of a child, who escaped the immediate horrors but paid a heavy price anyway.
