Once upon a time in ... Serralves em Festa

Between 01 and  02 June, the British Council is taking part in one of the biggest cultural events in Porto, the Serralves em Festa. Among the activities taking place in the various areas of the Fundação de Serralves are our traditional story-telling sessions in English for children. 

Telling stories has always been an essential form of knowledge transfer since humans started to learn languages.

Stories are powerful and have a magic quality that both captivates and motivates children.

Come and join our British Council readers and our "Once upon a time..." stories. Have some fun in English!

About Serralves em Festa:

Serralves em Festa aims to celebrate Serralves as an inclusive space for contemporary Art and Culture. It also tries to include theory and practice about the Environment and the countryside. 

This is the biggest contemporary cultural event in Portugal, with hundreds of activities taking place in various areas of the Fundação de Serralves. Over the years it has become an obligatory stopping-place for thousands of Portuguese and foreign visitors, and in 2018 broke all records by receiving 249,000 visitors. The 16th Edition of Serralves em Festa is an annual event which mobilises both the City of Porto and the whole country, and in 2019 we have planned a programme of performing arts projects in unconventional spaces, or in a dialogue with various chosen locations, namely the Foyers of the Museu and the Auditorium, the House, and the Serralves Park.
