at important masonic personalities associated with the area
and local institutions associated with the masonic world. It

of English folk and sardanes dancers - a circle dance
typical of Catalonia - and they will enjoy performances by
the Orfeó Català – the most historic Catalan choir - the
Catalan theatre company Bots&Barrals and the Catalan
actress-singer Laia Martinez, who will tell the story of St
George and the dragon to the little ones. In addition, the
romantic Catalan custom of exchanging roses and books with
the beloved ones will be one of the attractions of the
Catalan stands.
