    The much anticipated date for the Christmas fair at the Nobel International  School of the Algarve has been announced for Saturday 17th November. The largest Xmas fair in the Algarve is located on the EN 125 at Porches, and will welcome all from 10 a.m. Featuring a host of activities for adults and children alike including Santa’s magical grotto, fabulous raffle prizes, festive cake stall, bouncy castle  and many charity and trade stalls for all your festive treats. By popular demand, Santa will be making a very special appearance! All monies raised will again be donated to a  local Portuguese children’s home. Free entrance, plenty of parking. For further information call Alan Sheppard on 914952299

    There are more than 100 events taking place every month in the Algarve, if you would like more information about what is going then have a look at the Algarve Tourist Boards handy guide, which is in both English and Portuguese!
