BRITAIN is receiving a taste of Spanish party culture with the launch of the play Fiesta in London’s West End.

Based on Earnest Hemingway’s first novel, The Sun Also Rises, the passion fuelled production has been described as ‘an orgy of drinking’ by some critics.

The semi-autobiographical play follows an American writer immersing himself in the bullfighting culture of Pamplona, set to the backdrop of a live jazz band.

Along with his time spent in Pamplona, Hemingway was a frequent visitor to Andalucia, residing for some time in Ronda and Churriana.

Fiesta runs from now until March 2 at London’s Trafalgar Studios.
