Almunecar November 2017 Cultural Events

The November cultural itinerary has just been released by the town hall.

A pretty full month as usual, with concerts to suit both the classical & more modern tastes, as well as flamenco and more.

For local band gigs and the less “high brow” what’s on see local fliers for all the latest.
