EL EJIDO THEATRE has concluded its 40th anniversary with record visitors throughout the last month.

The city’s town hall reports that there have been more than 26,000 festival goers who have enjoyed a packed season of theatre, dance and celebrations in honour of the theatre’s four decades.

The celebration kicked off with the spectacular ‘colours of our life’ party in which more than 6,000 people descended on the city’s municipal park and town centre to enjoy the shows.

Representatives of city hall had hoped the festival programming would reinvigorate the city’s cultural reputation and the wider Almeria region as a whole.

Councillors remain modest about their achievements this season, saying that it represents nothing more than high-quality programming which resonated well with audiences. They added that the success proves El Ejido offers exciting cultural spectacles for the entire family and that the festival theatre continues to be a integral part of it.
