The Jerez Festival does not call itself a flamenco festival as by not doing so it makes flamenco the default for all that a festival is. Each day there are three shows of varying size, many of them premieres, plus workshops and dance classes that attract over 1000 people from all over the world (many of them women). My plan to write up each show has rather gone by the board as time is at a premium! Each day at 1pm there is a press conference of the main artists involved in the next day’s shows followed by a glass of whatever kind of Jerez sherry you fancy then usually the author of a new book etc talking…then lunch then in my case a bulerias class with Manuela Carpio then shows until around 1.30.am not to mention the peñas you can then go to…
