User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

At the beginning of August there was a purge by the police on mobility scooters, with a number confiscated from users. This was prompted after a picture appeared in the Spanish press of three young adults riding on a single scooter and a street cleaner getting hit by one. But after that things went quiet – and it appeared that everywhere you looked a scooter would whizz by with what looked like a very able bodied young person, or two perched upon it.

Benidorm Palace will once again be hosting a one off double spectacular this Sunday, October 25 with two very well known sounds from the 60´ - "The Fortunes" and "Walk like a Man", which is a clue, as it is also the name of one of the groups top hits. Over the years the Palace has presented a number of fabulous original 60´s bands such as The Tremeloes, Swinging Blue Jeans, The Searchers and The Merseybeats - always a sellout.

The 2015 Poppy Appeal in Benidorm was officially launched today – to much pomp and ceremony as it so justifiably deserves. The Torrevieja Pipes and Drums led the procession along the Levante promenade, attracting attention and applause from those that lined the route. Even the young lads drinking in the bars stood and clapped as the immaculately turned out Standard Bearers, British Legion members and ex-servicemen marched past… it certainly made everyone feel very proud of being a Brit.

Valencian Bank Holiday celebrated in Benidorm

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Inactive

The month begins with not one but two Bank Holidays here. Today, October 9th was a regional holiday – “Dia de la Comunidad Valenciana” or the Day of the Valencian Community. It marks the anniversary of the capture of the city of Valencia by King James I from the Moors in 1238, which at the time was an independent kingdom– and did not become part of Spain until 1707. It was not officially recognized and celebrated until 1976, when the Valencian Regional Government decreed it a Bank Holiday – the year after Franco died.

Taylor Marcs is a talent to take note of on the Benidorm entertainment circuit. The fact that he has only been here since January but already working 7 nights a week, with up to 3 shows per night speaks for itself! I met the gentle giant, all 6 ft 5” of him before his show at the Riviera Music Lounge and he is a gem - one of the funniest, sincerest and genuine of people you are likely to meet. He came with his constant companion Gale – as in Gales Honey, which he always has to hand to soothe his vocals!

The summer season officially ended at midnight – at least for drivers to Benidorm! As from today, 1st October an additional 1126 FREE parking spaces will be available. At the beginning of summer the Council extended the blue Pay & Display parking zones to many additional streets in the Rincon area. This was to deter holidaymakers – particularly domestic ones who´d drive over from Madrid, park up and leave their cars in the same spot for the duration of their stay, sometimes lasting two or three weeks.

Workmen and diggers have moved in along the Levante promenade and the 20 ramps along the entire length are being replaced with solid metal and concrete structures.
