10. February

February is another sunny, mild month in Algarve. The average temperature is still somewhat chilly at 55.04°F (12.8°C). This can warm up to a daily high of 61°F (16°C), but the nightly average low stays around 50°F (10°C).

Warmer clothes will be a necessity for those who plan to be out at night enjoying the extensive nightlife of the clubs and bars, or dining in the many restaurants that the area boasts.  

If you are going to be in Algarve during February, you can’t miss the Almond Flower Walk in Cumeada de Alta in addition to the beautifully blooming almond trees, you will also pass by several of the local villages. Part of the walk runs alongside the Beliche River. The photography opportunities are countless. This is a once-a-year event that February tourists should definitely take part in.  

One way to explore the area is by hiring a bike or even on horse -back, with plenty of equestrian centres in Algarve. 

Carnival usually comes to Algarve in February, celebrated with fiestas, parades and costumes. Tourists and locals alike are invited to get involved in the festivities.  

There is also a cycling tour of the Algarve annually during February.

 

It’s panto time again….Oh yes it is!

All is not well in Lagoa! The wicked Sheriff is growing rich on the many taxes he is forcing the poor townsfolk to pay and he is just about to become even richer, sounds a bit like the Troika! Pip and Penny, recently orphaned and heirs to vast fortunes, have been entrusted into the wicked Sheriff’s care and he is hatching a horrible plan to make sure that he will inherit the cash and marry the beautiful Maid Marion into the bargain. All that stands in his way is the very brave and dashing Robin Hood and his Merry Men, the fearsome Nanny Coddle, brainless Dave Knave (the wannabe outlaw) and a rather overworked Fairy. Will they succeed in thwarting the evil plot and beat the Sheriff and his villainous henchmen?

You will have to get down to see The Algarveans production of “Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood” at Lagoa Auditorium to find out!

The Pantomime is based on an old English Ballad from 1595, called “The Children in the Wood” or “The Norfolk Gentleman’s Last Will and Testament” It was first staged in 1793 as an opera at the Haymarket Theatre before it re-emerged as a pantomime at the Drury Lane Theatre, London in 1827 entitled ‘Harlequin and Cock Robin or Babes in the Wood’.

Guaranteed to be full of terrible jokes, flying custard pies, music and laughter - we’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure that our 20th anniversary pantomime will be one to remember! So come along and brighten up a cold winter’s night and watch The Algarveans Experimental Theatre Group perform this most traditional of stories at the Lagoa Auditorium on Wednesday to Friday 12th to 14th March 2014 at 8pm.

Tickets are on sale at €10 for adults and €5 for children by emailing algarveansboxoffice@gmail.com or calling 913 723 611, 966 211 634 or 282 496 635.
