Please join us and help us celebrate our traditional ‘Magusto’ (or Chestnut Celebration), Saturday (22nd) at 6pm in the Centre at St Paul's (Hills Road)!
The celebration of roasted chestnuts is associated with a legend, which says that a Roman soldier, known as Martin of Tours, once rode his horse by an almost naked beggar on a rainy day, and having nothing to give, he cut his cloak in half with his sword and gave it to him. Legend has it that at that exact moment it stopped raining, which is why, according to the legend, it is always sunny on St Martin's day - this is often referred to as "St Martin's summer".
As usual we will have the amazing Portuguese roasted chestnuts, and also some other traditional Portuguese snacks and drinks, including the wonderfully indulgent francesinhas from Porto (these last will be available at a small extra price; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francesinha). Entertainment will be guaranteed by popular music and traditional games!  
We are looking forward to see you all there!

When: 22nd of November, 6.00pm

Where: Lower Hall, of the Centre at St Paul's, Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 1JP (http://www.centrestpauls.org.uk)

Price: £3,00 for Members, £5,00 for Non-Members
