Lagos Cultural Centre

Fado, Flamenco and more in Lagos this September

The city’s Cultural Centre offers a great variety of concerts and shows all month

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Lagos’s Cultural Centre is proud of its reputation for offering a diversified and quality selection of events and shows. And this September is no exception.

The month starts with the 2022 edition of the Fado Fest’ with two great names of the new Fado generation – Teresinha Landeiro (on the 9th) and Ricardo Ribeiro (on the 10th), two artists who have been proving themselves in this very Portuguese genre, not only nationally but also internationally.

Celebrating 20 years of existence, Lagos’s Flamenco Festival will take place between the 15th and 17th of September, with three performances: “Estampa Flamenca”, “Alma Flamenca”, and “David Pérez y su Cuadro Flamenco”. But there will be more Flamenco, with the party starting on the streets with two more shows: El Niño Manuel on Praça Gil Eanes and Praça do Infante (13th) and Son del Sur on Praça d’Armas and Rua Portas de Portugal (14th).

Portuguese comedian Diogo Batáguas is yet another famous name performing at the Duval Pestana Auditorium, with the stand-up comedy show “Processo” (on the 23rd), which is touring the whole country.

Mikhail Shumov and Joana Vieira Shumova, who form the “Caminus Duo”, will wrap up the month with a cello and piano concert as part of the “Sounds at Twilight” cycle.

During the whole month, the Centro Cultural de Lagos will also open its doors to visitors with two exhibitions: “Lagos, the last stop” (until December 30th), inaugurated as part of the celebrations of the “100th anniversary of the railway in Lagos”, and an exhibition commemorating the “Bicentennial of the Independence of Brazil” (September 10th to October 29th).

Tickets for the shows are available at the Centro Cultural de Lagos or through Ticketline, and the exhibitions are free.
