Who doesn’t like free events and places with free entrance? Luckily, Europe has a lot of them. In the lobby to the National Theatre in London you can listen to live music (often jazz) Monday to Saturday evenings. Upcoming artists include the Japanese singer Eriko Ishihara, Pete Letanka, Gustavo Marques and classic jazz and soul vocalist Julie KcKee. Find more information at Foyer Music.
In Paris, Galeries Lafayette holds a free fashion show each Friday at 3pm. And in Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado, where you can enjoy paintings by Rubens, Boticelli and Goya, has free entrance every Sunday. The only part I’ve seen of Madrid so far is the airport so the next time I’m in the Spanish capital I will definitely visit Museo del Prado.
If you happen to pass by Seville in south Spain, remember that Seville Cathedral has free entrance every Sunday 2.30- 6pm.
