Hi everyone just to let you know of the up and coming events at the Grand Design House, Casa La Pedrera situated justoff the CV95 overlooking the beautiful Torremendo Lake and specifically Bonfire Night!!
A comment on the local radio inspired this post as the presenter mentioned there was nothing organised for Bonfire Night and I wanted to let everyone know, there certainly is ! (and a very popular one at that!) This year Bonfire Night falls on the 5th which is a Monday so we are celebrating it on the Sunday which is the 4th from 5pm.
In recent years it has been a country and western theme but this year we are going all out and combining it with Halloween -So its girls and guys and guys (for the bonfire) in fancy dress if you can manage it please! - prizes for the best dressed!!
It is going to be an evening jam packed with entertainment as well as a fantastic spooky horse show with trick rider Emmay Tytherliegh who amazed audiences with her superb skills this summer with her death defying tricks There will also be a scary hay ride to the lake, quad trails, pony rides and even air rifle target shooting at some pumpkins. Music and dancing will be supplied from DJ and radio presenter Richie and the fireworks will be created by a licensed and insured spanish company - which really takes the pressure off - it was a nightmare last year trying to light the fireworks in almost galeforece conditions!! This time its all computerised with a touch of a buttom. BBQ, Food and refreshments will be available and tickets are obtainable by calling Jenni on 660816620 and are priced at 8 euros for adults and 4 for children. You can pay online or pick up tickets from the tea garden at the Grand Design House.
Before that however we are also holding a Dancethon on Sunday October the 21st in aid of the AECC & Emaus. This is our 2nd year of holding such an event and we raised over 5000 which was a fantastic result. This year we are combining a number of dance styles jazz, modern, zumba, ballroom and latin american and have teamed up with some fantastic dance schools in the local area namely Ruth Kingsbury Dance Acadamy, Cindy´s Zumba & Zumba with Lisa and finally Lyn Aspden of Strictly Dance.
To get involved simply choose your style of dance and get sponsored or pay 5 euros on the day. Spectators are welcome at a euro entry and there is plenty of entertainment on offer throughout the day. To end the afternoon, female vocal entertainer, Marie Denise Evans will be performing so why not come up for a cream tea and enjoy the afternoon dancing and listening to some local talent. The Grand Design House will also be open with crafts for sale, especially with Christmas around the corner, there are some fabulous, hand crafted well priced gifts on offer.
