2. Aficionado Theater Casa de la Trinidad Contest
The María Auxiliadora Theatre will host the closing ceremony of the Aficionado Casa de la Trinidad Theatre Contest on November 9th at 7:30 p.m. The last representation of this exciting play will be Yo, Lázaro de Tormes, an approach to the Castilian classic of the Golden Age that continues to be fun and educating at the same time. The María Auxiliadora Theatre is just a fifteen minute walk from the Urban Sevilla Hostel, next to the Jardines del Valle and within the educational complex of the Don Bosco Foundation.
3. Derbi Regatta
Have you enjoyed any regattas lately? A regatta with the colours of two football teams? The Sevillian derbi regatta is the main event prior to the match between Sevilla FC and Real Betis (Saturday, November 9th at 10:15). The match will be held at the old facilities of the Renfe de San Jerónimo and will end near the Royal Nautical Club of Seville. The sporting day can be completed with the help of the clash between Sevilla and Betis, one of the regional duels with more history – and passion – of the first Spanish division.
4. Last family Sundays at Magallanes Park
This year marks the fifth centenary of the first round of the world in charge of the expedition led by the Portuguese Fernando de Magallanes and the Spanish Juan Sebastián Elcano. The Seville Tower, the most iconic skyscraper in the city, has joined the celebrations by organising a series of family activities in the Magallanes Park. The program runs every Sunday until November 24th and includes activities, such as tours and very interactive workshops. It’s a nice way to learn and have fun when travelling as a family to Seville.
5. Monkey Week
With more than 100 confirmed artists, the 11th edition of Monkey Week is considered as one of the great events of autumn for lovers of independent music. The Alameda de Hércules, very close to the Central Urban Sevilla, is once again the stage chosen for the numerous concerts that will take place between November 18th and 23rd. Los Punsetes, Carolina Durante and Neuman, Tropical Fuck Storm, Lysistrata and the Uruguayan Juan Wauters are some of the best-known names, together with the up-and-coming national talents such as Bronquio, Cariño and Texxcoco.
6. The Seville Fado Festival 2019
On Tuesday, November 26th, the second act of the Seville Fado Festival 2019 is scheduled, which will be performed by Raquel Tavares and her team of artists (André Dias, Bernardo Viana, Daniel Pinto and Fred Ferreira). The young Portuguese singer, who is a sensation in her country, already has a long career behind her and is considered as one of the most influential voices of today’s fado. Her concerts are always an experience for the senses, creating an intimate and captivating atmosphere. You can check it out for yourself at the Lope de Vega Theatre, opposite María Luisa Avenue, at 20:30.
7. The Maria Luisa Park in autumn
According to many people, María Luisa Park is the most beautiful and welcoming of all the parks in Seville. As autumn progresses, the park’s plants and flowers change their appearance, offering a very different picture to what can be observed during the summer. Therefore, strolling through this spacious green area is an activity to consider in November, at which time the park’s market stalls get ready to sell Christmas products.
