What's On Newsletter 27th January 2019
As January draws to a close, we start to look forward to the Carnivals, Tapas Routes and Almond Blossom. This year the Almond Blossom has come a little earlier than normal due to the warm winter, and Carnival will be a little later than normal! Lent starts on the 6th March this year, so the Carnivals and Tapas routes will all start around the end of February.
