There is a site where you can watch streaming British TV for free here.

It seems too good to be true.

Another good VPN is this one.  (it has a free trial)

I have recently inherited some guitars which were made in Granada. The labels that are on the guitars are Antonio Marin, Manuel Bellido, Bernd Martin, Andy Marvi, Antonio Torres and  Santos Hernandez. Some of the guitars are in need of some repair. I wonder if there is anyone in Granada who knows these guitarmakers and who maybe knows if it is possible to have them repaired and maybe even valued. Do any of them speak English?

There is a very pleasant group of people who go for walks on Sundays and sometimes on Wednesdays around Almuñecar.
It is free.

There is more information about them here.

The best place is the Plateria which is a flamenco club

There are lots of Tablaos in caves.
These tend to be touristy.
The best one is run by Enrique Canastera.

There is nightly flamenco at the Zoraya Restaurant.

A good place is the Chien Andalou

There is a new website which gives more info here

What to do in Granada / Re: No tickets left to the Alhambra. Help!

I will share with you a little known secret.

If you have no ticket to the Alhambra go to the entrance of the Alhambra.

Don't get into the queue for tickets.

To the right of the entrance is an area with yellow machines.

Put your credit card into the machine and buy a ticket.

The people in the queue are wasting their time but nobody tells them.

I spoke to someone who did this yeaterday and they got a ticket for 5pm this was at 11am.

On the website the tickets were sold out.

What to do in Granada / Re: Activities for children in the summer

I don't have children myself so I asked a guitarmaker friend who lives in Granada and this is his reply.
Probably not ideal because it is out of town but great because you could dump english-speaking kids there for two weeks and they would be in a very spanish environment but at the same time communication would not be a problem because they have English teachers there.  I used to work there teaching.
These two places have week-long summer courses for young children (4 to 5 hours per day) which are very good.  My nephew went last summer.  I can't find any info on the page though, you might have to call.
this is where we send Tommy in July and he seems to do fine.  Again, very little info on the page.
 These people do stuff for kids, although I don't know about summer.

There are a number of high-priced country clubs in town that bend over backwards for kids (if you are a member).  You never know if that would accept temporary members.

Some of the private music schools in Granada might do summer courses.

hope this helps,
