Silves theatre

Teatro Gregório Mascarenhas in Silves is expected to open its doors to the public again following upgrading work.

Silves Mayor Isabel Soares said: “The installation of a telephone system is the last thing that needs to be done in the building.” The mayor hopes to see the theatre opening early in the New Year.

She added: “We are going to have performances by the Algarve Orchestra, theatre groups and Silves philharmonic band. We will be giving visitors a programme of quality entertainment to mark the opening of the theatre.”
