El Dia de Ingles



It's an English first for Urbanisation San Cristobal, Alberic.


For the first time in its history, the annual Fiesta of Urbanisation San Cristobal will include a traditional day organised by the English community.  Colin Burtenshaw, resident and committee member of the Urbanisation which is located near Alberic, reports, “Such a good relationship has developed between the Spanish locals and the English and other nationalities in this area, that some months ago we were invited by the fiesta president to organise a day with an English theme called el Dia del ingles”



The Fiesta de San Cristobal is one of the largest and most popular in this area and lasts from 28th July to 6th August with many different attractions and daily events. The Fiesta includes some great live bands, discos, a Grand Paella Night with Spanish recording artiste Angel Marino, a variety night, and even its own Marathon. There is even a licensed bar and other on-site facilities each day throughout the festival.  (See the list below for the full itinerary.)


The events are traditionally very well attended so it is indeed an honour to have been asked to organise this unique evening of “English” entertainment and I would like to say a big thank you to my colleagues on the Fiesta Committee and especially the residents of the Urbanisation San Cristobal for their help in making it possible.


"EL DIA DEL INGLES" will be held on Tuesday 1st August from 18.30 p.m. until late. Entrance is FREE and the attractions that are suitable for all the family include a Licensed Bar, a Mini-Fair, a Bouncy Castle, a Coconut Shy, various stalls & games, an English Burger & food tent provided by Steve & Gill from Bar Pastor in Alberic. There will be live music on stage with JIMMY MAC who will no doubt be up to his usual antics and a Tombola stall etc. There is also a Children’s Fancy Dress Parade and a Grand Raffle with many prizes including a colour TV . Raffle tickets will be on sale on the day and also at Bar Little John in Xativa, Bar Rachel in Pla de Corrals, Bar Pastor in Alberic and from the Urbanisation. San Cristobal Social Club.


We are looking forward to a great evening and if you would like to join us, all are welcome so please come along and join in the fun.
