entertainment for 80 year olds

edited December 1969 in General
"My wife and I both 80 will be coming to Funchal in June I should be most grateful if you could tell me suitable night live music and or show places eating or solely drinking I know of the casino We like for example fado [April in Portugal ] and Brazilian music {samba ]"

I got this enquiry through http://www.madeira4u.com/ ... does anyone have any suggestions please. Thanks. Der

PS it's not an April fool thing


  • Many of the hotels in Funchal put on a Fado evening but in the main,it is "tourist" Fado. Arsenios in the Zona Velha(old town) just off the Largo do Corpo Santo seems to get the best Fadista/fadisto singers.
    Also most of the major hotels feature a Madeiran folk dance group. I would not class these as "tourist" as there are groups dedicated to keeping alive the old music and dances. It's a long way from Fado but entertaining and interesting.
    By the way,all the Fado I have heard on Madeira is the Lisboa Fado and not Coimbra.
