A total of a dozen concerts has been scheduled for evenings during the summer months.The Santa Florentina Cultural Association, SERHS and the Arenys de Munt Town Hall have reached an agreement for the Santa Florentina Festival to be held in the Jalpí Castle. This agreement, which was signed by all three parties and will last three years, will allow Arenys de Munt and the Jalpí Castle to host a festival that is fully consolidated and rooted in the region for the first time.
The Santa Florentina Festival, which is in its 18th edition this year, has ten concerts lined up between the 24th of July and the 20th of August, all of them at Jalpí Castle. With a capacity of 500 people per concert, the first two will be held at 8 pm on Sundays, while the others are scheduled for 10 pm. The doors will open two hours before the concerts in order for Arcs Càtering, part of the SERHS Group, to offer the audience a selection of catered items.
In the opinion of Carlos Hartmann, the president of the Santa Florentina Cultural Association and the promoter of the concerts, “this change in venue is giving a highly consolidated festival a new impetus in a privileged setting”. Likewise, Hartmann also said “the three-year agreement allows us to bring continuity and stability to an initiative that was started 18 years ago.”
In turn, the Arenys de Munt Town Hall has expressed its satisfaction with the fact that a world-class cultural event is being held in the town. Its mayor, Joan Rabasseda, believes that “the Santa Florentina Festival makes Arenys de Munt a cultural referent in the region and will help us to promote tourism in our town”.
Finally, Raimon Bagó, the General Manager of SERHS Food, believes that “this is an opportunity for Jalpí Castle to consolidate this location as a referent for holding events of all kinds. Furthermore, it will allow the public to get to know the high level of our culinary offerings”.
During the next few days, a press conference will be held for all media with the goal of explaining and sharing all the details of this year’s edition of the Festival.
