The Club has an active social calendar which includes events such as Pub Nights, Movie Nights, Theater Nights, etc. that are featured in Canterbury's newsletter. Also, the newsletter provides information on the latest cultural opportunities in Madrid, such as Museums, Botanical Gardens, Live Flamenco Shows, Bull Fights, and of course the fabulous and unrivaled nightlife that the city has to offer. In addition, Canterbury sponsors cultural visits to several Spanish cities, and other places of interest, which you can do on the weekends.
