The 19th Century Bandstand at Varzea Pequena in Tomar

As mentioned in previous posts, the Bandstand (Coreto) located at the garden of Varzea Pequena was built more than a century ago and as might be expected, it has been used a lot for philharmonic bands, many of them coming from different cities of Portugal and even from Spain. However, recently I read in a Portuguese newspaper, that the Varzea Pequena Bandstand was also used for rock music, during the Festival of the Trays (Festa dos Tabuleiros). I wish I was there, but living so far away from Portugal (Australia) doesn’t allow me easy access to my home town. So I wasn’t there.
