Madrid Cultural Plans - First Week of June

The month of June comes with a great variety of cultural plans.
Here is our suggestion with different options for you to plan in advance:
- Feria del Libro 2016 until 12th of June: This is a must for us every year! They have invited France and Aamin Malouf, the writer who opened this year's fair. Some activities focused on El Quijote's 400th year anniversary, which are also taking place in the fair along with signatures from famous writers. Our advice is to check the agenda beforehand. I am sure you will end up shopping some books!
As a curiosity, visit stand nª44 where the most expensive book (worth 12.000€) is on sale. It is a copy from one of the main British Library Treasures and it belonged to Queen Juana La Loca. 
The book is called "Las Muy Ricas Horas de Juana I de Castilla".

- Theater: A Midsummer Night Dream in Naves del Matadero Madrid: until 12th of June. The best way to celebrate the coming summer. Take a ride to Matadero for this wonderful Shakespeare play. This version from Dario Facal and Javier Patiño is quite original and you will even find some 3D glasses for a different perspective from play's forrest.

- Exhibition at Museo del Prado: El Bosco.  I can't wait to visit this exhibition! In order to ensure avoiding queues before it ends at the end of September, my advice is to buy your ticket on-line, the sooner the better. The exhibition commemorates its 500th anniversary of El Bosco's death.

- Photoespaña2016: Another must in June, although you can visit it until the end of august. Follow the yellow sign and check the map, I always plan an itinerary beforehand and it is always refreshing and inspiring.
