  • The Department of Culture has prepared a full programme of activities with concerts and literary routes for 22, 23 and 24 October

Castalla will host the fourth edition of the ‘Fira de la Fantasia’ on 22, 23 and 24 October. The event is dedicated to extolling the figure of the writer Enric Valor and his relationship with the town where he was born. With this aim, the Department of Culture has prepared a full programme with a weekend full of activities. Between Friday and Sunday, attendees will be able to enjoy concerts, literary routes or book stalls in the old town of the capital of La Foia.

The Councillor for Culture, Saúl Mira, stressed “the importance of recovering the social and cultural life in Castalla with this proposal that puts in value our literary heritage, together with the important figure of Enric Valor”. The mayor of Culture has invited all those interested in attending the fair “to discover the relationship between our town and Enric Valor, a connection that exists beyond the fantasy that can be traced in our streets”.

The fair will kick off on Friday 22nd. The ‘Valorianes’ concert will open the activities from 20:30 in the Municipal Auditorium. The Ensemble Lumine will be in charge of performing the songs based on the rondallas of Valor ‘Història d’un mig pollastre’ and ‘El dimoni fumador’, with music by Lusa Monllor.

On Saturday 23rd the scheduled activities continue. At 9:00 a.m. a literary route will set off in the direction of Planisses with Vicent Brotons, departing from the town’s Creu Vermella. In the afternoon, from 5:30 p.m. in the Plaza Mayor, the renowned Valencian singer-songwriter Dani Miquel will perform the concert ‘Musiqueries Valorianes’ accompanied by the ‘Ma, Me, Mi, Mo, Músics’. In addition, attendees will be able to browse the shelves of the ‘Fireta del llibre fantàstic’ to find their favourite works.

Later, at 19:00, the ‘Festa Valor’ will take place, enlivened by a ‘Nit de Rondalles’ with Eva Andújar and Jordi Raül. At the end of the event, the awards ceremony of the ‘Viquiconcurs Fotogràfic d’Espais Valorians’ will take place.

Finally, on Sunday 24th October, the calendar of activities ends with the literary route through the corners of the city that are most closely related to Enric Valor. In this case, the departure will be at 11:00 a.m. from the Town Hall itself. This itinerary is based on the work ‘Sense la terra promesa’ by Valor and will be accompanied by Assumpta and Rosa Mira.
