LA TROBADA d’ESCOLES (The Trobada) has gone from being a festival of schools to one of families, with something for all members of the household to get involved in.
This evening, Friday 10th March will play host to a presentation by the Mayor of Vergel, Ximo Coll, followed by a concert in which Pep Gimeno ‘Botifarra’ and the Vergel band will perform together at the Plaza de l’Ajuntament.
The main Trobada celebration takes place on 25th March and will feature the classic cercavila of the schools of the region, beginning outside the Segària school and ending outside the city council offices.
There will also be four exhibitions taking place, announced by the Councilor for Culture, Lluïsa Miralles: two from IES Number 3 of Denia on floristry and drones, one from IES Xebic of Ondara on Women’s Day posters and the largest, which has been possible thanks to the collaboration of Vergel neighbours, a collection of images of both old and modern buildings, to show the architectural evolution of the town, which will be displayed in the Tower of Medinacelli.
As usual, the central events of the Trobada will take place during the afternoon, but the programme extends throughout the day. With sports activities in the morning and at night, the concert of La Gira d’Escola Valenciana, with three performances: Feliu Ventura with Xavi Sarrià, Auxili and Reacció.
On the 25th, bars, restaurants and shops throughout Vergel will offer special menus at reduced prices.
