Festival of Spanish Theatre in London (Festelón)

The Festival of Spanish Theatre of London (FesTeLõn) has taken place in June every year since 2013, when it opened at the Greenwood Theatre, with a production of El Diccionario (The Dictionary) by Manuel Calzada, a play about the lexicographer María Moliner, with Vicky Peña starring in the lead role.[1] Its objective is to bring contemporary theatre beyond the borders of Spain, working with professional Spanish theatre companies. The plays are usually performed in Spanish with English surtitles in order to ensure that they are accessible to the widest possible audience. The festival also includes a full programme of related talks and workshops to complement the stage performances, as well as bilingual “meet the cast” sessions, with Q&A.[2]
