Look at culture in a different light with
this selection of the best events happening all over Britain this weekend as part of the 2016 festival
It has long been known for gastronomy, but this year San Sebastián is tempting visitors with a packed cultural programme. As the joint
European Capital of Culture 2016 (with Wrocław in Poland), its lineup of events include “guerilla lighting actions” to brighten the dark days of January; a music-box festival with gigs in unusual spaces; an art installation involving the city’s fountains; a “caravan of desires” full of erotica travelling through the streets; a Stop the War festival; and Sunday hikes.
One appealing-sounding show is a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Cristina Enea Park, with live music and contemporary dance, preceded by an alfresco feast at dusk. Culture aside, the city’s highlights include a
pintxo (tapas) crawl around the bars of the old town or, at the other end of the spectrum, a Michelin-starred dinner – San Sebastián’s restaurants have 16 stars between them, including three three-star establishments – astonishing for a relatively small city. The best views are from the top of Mount Urgull. There is a fantastic city beach, Playa de la Concha, plus two surfing beaches, and the Paseo Nuevo is the place to stroll and watch the sunset.
Food lovers know it well, but in 2016
San Sebastian will be showing off its artistic side with more than 400 projects planned to mark its year as one of Europe’s Capitals of Culture.
