It has been the first time Bedford Language Centre has covered this topic. Carnival, the time of the year to party before lent, is well celebrated in a lot of countries in Europe. In Germany it is celebrated wherever the Catholic faith is kept . The Nice carnival in France lasts for 3 weeks. In Italy each mask is linked to a town. In mainland Spain the Cadiz carnival has been going for centuries. Without doubt the best known Carnivals in Europe are Venezia in Italy and Santa Cruz de Tererife, the biggest after Rio in the world. Alessandra gave us a very interested presentation. We also learned about different dishes in different cities and of course we had a great time and sampled delicious food. Can’t wait for the next year! Thank you to everyone who helped on the day and to everyone who wore flowers and masks.
