Picasso: Minotaurs & Matadors- Gagosian Gallery
Bulls, matadors and minotaurs were fundamental in Pablo Picasso’s artwork. An exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery ( 6 -24 Britannia Street ) is exploring this theme and the work of one of the greatest artists of all times. As Picasso was born in Malaga, Andalucia, a visit at the exhibition might be a good way to start your ‘ journey ‘ to Andalucia, before moving to the Feria de Londres.

Feria de Londres – 27-28th of May, Pottersfield Park
Are you hungry for tapas and Tortilla de Patatas, thirsty for Spanish beer and wine and thrilled by flamenco performances? If the answer is yes, then this is your lucky week end as the Feria de Londres will take place at the Potters Field Park, under Tower Bridge. During these two days you will have a chance to virtually ‘travel’ to Andalucia and enjoy its cuisine, traditions and tastes…and by the way, it’s a free event.
