Easter is just around the corner and many of us have opted to stay in Barcelona, relaxing and enjoying all the events the city has lined up over the Easter break.
If you are one of the lucky ones and have the entire week off, don’t miss the PopUp Inspire event. Start the festive week with 48 hours of creativity in the heart of Port Fòrum. It’s not just the topic that makes this a one-off event but also its location. It’s an experience that combines culture, style, expression and passion. A fascinating blend of the classical and the avant-garde, with pop-ups, shops, food trucks, concerts and workshops.
From 13 until 17 April the Poble Espanyol becomes a feast for the senses with an exhibition of fragrances and colours. De Flor en Flor, Barcelona’s Flower and Garden Festival is holding its second edition. Over five days you can admire the floral decorations lining streets and squares, orchid and bonsai displays and floral-themed art exhibitions. There will also be live music and a long list of workshops for children and adults alike, making this festival a unique event in the city.
For theatre-goers, we have an original proposal. The Impro-Show is running at the Teatreneu, in the Gràcia district, until the end of April. This is a show, not to be repeated, in which the spectators are invited to take part in the monologue. You can drop a word or phrase into an urn at the entrance to the theatre and the actors must improvise around the words they read on the pieces of paper. Don’t miss this original, innovative and entertaining show. Tickets can be purchased through its website and there is an option to include a tapa with a drink, an ice-cream or crêpe, or even to have dinner while watching the show.
Would you like to see Barcelona from the clouds? Runners have an essential date for their diary on 17 April with the Salomon Run. A 10-kilometre urban run with panoramic views of the city skyline, the sea and the mountains. This year it will be running through Poble Espanyol and will be climbing, step by step, up to the heavens.
A culinary route sampling tapas is always an excellent idea during Easter week. Carrer Mandri (or Mandri Street) has devised the perfect formula for relaxing on the outdoor terraces to enjoy some tasty tapas and a great atmosphere.
