10th February 2011
As one of the
largest cities in Europe, Barcelona
is a hub for a host of different entertainment, arts and media events. Visitors
to the Spanish city with cheap flights to Barcelona from Jet2.com will never be
left wanting for things to do or places to visit, and February is certainly no
exception to that rule.
An Indulgent Carnival
month, Carnival will be held in Barcelona. The city’s streets come alive to
celebrate this annual event, which is timed just before Lent for people to
indulge in pleasures that they will soon be unable to partake in.
A range of
different festivities will take place; from the Gran Rua de Carnaval, a parade
with a variety of singers and dancers; to Jueves Lardero, a tortilla making
competition that will leave participants with a fantastically tasty meal. The
Carnival is completely free, and won’t end until March.
Moving to a Different Beat
From the end of
this week, Barcelona will also be the host of the International Percussion
Festival of Catalonia. The events are dedicated to celebrating percussion and
drum instruments and it is reflected through the music of groups from a host of
different cultural and ethnical backgrounds.
The organisers of
this year’s event have noted that it will have a “distinctly international
flavour”, with an emphasis on discovering new and fresh styles and sounds.
Attendees can expect to listen to music and sounds that they would ordinarily
never have the chance to. The festival will finish at the end of February so
anyone not wanting to miss out should consider Jet2.com’s cheap flights
sale on at the moment.
