LARK IN THE PARK

Our annual Lark in the Park charity event is back after two years absence. This fabulous early evening picnic in the park with a play and live musical acts will take place on Sunday 5th June 2022 in the Parque Torre Leonera in Benahavis. Gates open at 5.30 pm and the curtain goes up at 6.15 pm. We are delighted to have a one-act comedy play directed by Peter Brooks along with singer Karen Danzig, and her Del Sol choir. We hope to secure one more act too.

The chosen charity this year is the “Adintre Foundation“ which was established over twenty years ago and supports disadvantaged people across the Costa del Sol. It is best known for supporting the homeless, the last two years has seen its role focus on feeding the hungry with daily hot meals and a regular food bank. They work with victims of domestic violence, eviction, disability, children and young people at risk of social exclusion, the homeless, older people without means to support themselves, and as they always say “with anyone who needs a dose of affection”. They are a self-funding and non-profit making charity led by an incredible woman,Joyce Gyimah, and her team of volunteers.

Entry tickets are available online via our website and we are asking for a minimum donation of 17€ please. We are limited to 120 places so please book early. 

We will organise the event and the entertainment. The venue is provided by the town hall of Benahavis. The actors and entertainers all appear for no fee. All you need to do is make your donation, come along, bring your picnic refreshments, rugs and cushions (chairs, tables and candelabra are optional) and be prepared to enjoy yourself. Dancing is possible if you feel like moving. Our wonderful Emcee for the evening is Carmel Rogers.

The one act play is “Darlings, you were wonderful” written by Derek Lomas. Peter Brook is director with Janet Barnett as co-director. The play has a cast of six women.

The synopsis is "The Amazon Theatre Group are to perform a little-known, passionate Spanish drama in a festival. Amid multiple tensions and general chaos backstage, Lesley, the missing member, staggers in paralytically drunk and dressed in motorcycle gear. The adjudicator is impressed with the cast’s seething passion and pronounces Lesley’s motorcycle regalia a stroke of genius!”

Our super six women cast is Eileen Audas, Rebecca Flowerdew, Veronica del Cerro, Fiona Poole, Hannah Murray and Beverley Stonehewer.

If you have never been to this event, we can tell you with confidence that it is a lovely evening in a beautiful park. The amphitheatre is best with your cushions. Disabled access is available. Free car parking will be available under the town hall.
