    Día de la Mujer Concert

    It was an absolute pleasure to celebrate International Women’s Day with the Concejal de Cultura, D. Antonio Luís López Campoy, and members of the Los Alcázares Town Hall.

    A Night at the Oscars

    A night at the Oscars was the theme of our fifteenth anniversary and everyone got glammed up for the occasion. What a fabulous night of reminiscences, fun and laughter we had. The event wouldn’t have been complete without our long-standing friend and entertainer, Barrington, who sang and joined in the fun. Thanks to Ryan, for some fab photos on the red carpet!
