Benahavis Village

A huge thunderstorm on the way, so take care. Parents will be called from the school to collect their children. Careful with blocked drains, where you park your car etc…

The village water supply was cut early this morning as the filtration system had become blocked with silt. Aguas de Benahavis are currently working on the problem and hope to have the water supply back to normal early this afternoon.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Welsh tenor to sing at the new Benahavís Town Hall auditorium

Tuesday 18th September

To celebrate the start of the first season of the new Benahavis Decorative & Fine Arts Society (BDFAS), and as an introduction to its new venue in the auditorium at the new Benahavis Town Hall, a very special event has been arranged  featuring Stephn Lloyd-Morgan  singing a selection from his new album ‘In My Father’s Footsteps’.

The auditorium is part of the brand new Town Hall complex and has, according to BDFAS chairman Betty Fooks, superb facilities for all manner of productions, conferences and meetings. “We are very grateful to the Ayuntamiento de Benahavís for allowing us to use this magnificent venue,” she said. “And it is entirely appropriate that Steve, who lives in Benahavís, should perform on this occasion.”

Stephen Lloyd-Morgan, who is an operatic tenor, has decided that sales of his new album should benefit two charities with all proceeds going to Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice in Spain and the Tenovus Cancer Charity in his native Wales. Copies of the CD will be on sale on the day.

The event, which will open with a short talk on the history of NADFAS to which BDFAS is affiliated, is on Tuesday, September 18. Doors will open at 5.30pm. After the performance there will be a complementary drinks reception. We look forward to seeing existing members and for prospective members donations of Euro 10,  will be kindly accepted on the night.
