Lisbon Events Calendar

Logistics for planning things to do for an excellent day (or week, or month) in and around Lisbon, in English.

There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events until April 3 and possibly beyond, so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on just in case.

ONLINE JAMS | Lisbon Irish Session Under Quarantine | FREE

In olden times, on any given boring Monday night, you could find a bunch of talented locals churning out some traditional Irish tunes at O’Gilin’s, our favorite (and the oldest) Irish pub in Lisbon.

Oh, how times have changed. O’Gilin’s has shut its doors indefinitely in the name of hygiene and peace. St. Patrick’s day 2020 in Lisbon was basically cancelled. And “the best pint of Guinness in town” has become but a sweet memory…

Luckily though, the lads and lassies behind Lisbon Irish Session won’t let a global pandemic keep them down. For the last few Mondays, they have been using their modern technology, violins, guitars, flutes, a bit of Irish luck, and the sheer power of will to keep the music alive.

Check out their Facebook page and Youtube channel to hear some defiance, Irish style. Updated roughly every Monday night, as per tradition.

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

CANCELLED - to Mar 30 | FILM CYCLE | Silent Cinema at Casa da Achada | Mouraria | FREE @ Casa da Achada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If there’s any hope left for Lisbon in the face of genocidal gentrification, rampant inequality, unintentional rape by tourists and landlords, and general good old-fashioned capitalist decay, that hope is, and has been for a thousand years, the neighborhood of Mouraria.

And tucked away in the seldom-accessed-by-tuk-tuk heart of this haven of character is Casa da Achada, a non-profit cultural organization opened a decade ago to honor and continue the legacy of local artist, writer, critic, and teacher of Portuguese Mário Dionísio.

One of the many cool things the “House of the Found” does is free silent oldie film screenings every Monday night. They’re usually preceded by a guest speaker, and have Portuguese subtitles.

*The socialist fun commences at 21h30, and seating is limited.

**Make sure to bundle up this time of year as, due to capitalism, there is no heating.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

“There’s just something visceral about moving a puppet frame by frame. There’s a magical quality about it. Maybe you can get smoother animation with computers, but there’s a dimension and emotional quality to this kind of animation that fits these characters and this story.”
Tim Burton.

You’ve probably heard of Tim. Chances are you even love at least one of his films.
Having started his career at Disney during the last millennium, Tim has dabbled in live-action, stop-motion, and 3D animation, developing an original and memorable style that has yet to be copied successfully.

Through April 19th, the most underrated museum in Lisbon, aka the Museu da Marioneta, is proud to present “Tim Burton – The Animation Puppets,” an exhibition that brings you face to face with the original drawings, puppets, models, drafts, and character studies used in the production of classics like Mars Attaks!, Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie, and more.

Bring the kids, and/or the kid in you.

Museum hours:

PAUSED - Bi-Weekly | OPEN MIC | Shaka's Tuesday night at Camones Cinebar | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Open mics are traditionally a sh.tshow.
But the host of this one, Joaquim de Brito, aka Shaka, however, is a local legend, a musically speaking jack of all trades, a semi-god among men, and an overall nice fella. And Claudia — office-worker turned badass bar-tender/-owner, pro at making anyone feel at home with her smile, and woman behind low-key chill spot Camones Cinebar — is the yin to Shaka’s yang.

Their bi-weekly “open mic for all arts, all ages” stands out. Here, people actually come for the mic part. It is still open mic, which means that most of the art… leaves much to be desired. But at least someone’s listening. Every other Tuesday throughout the year.

NOTE: If you want to perform (or just get a seat), get there and/or sign up early. It’s usually a full house by 20h.

Every other Tuesday, starting at 19h30.

All ages and art forms welcome.

to May 12 | TUESDAY ONLINE DONATION YOGA
Mar 31 @ 19:30 – 20:45
to May 12 | TUESDAY ONLINE DONATION YOGA

There’s a global pandemic out there, people, and so it has become increasingly more difficult to not lose one’s sh.t.
One thing that’s helped people not lose their sh.t over the centuries, however, is yoga.

Rachael McGill is a Yoga Alliance RT200 trained teacher who has been practicing yoga for the last sixteen years, and teaching it for the last six.

Rachel’s here to help, and here’s what she says about Tuesday nights:
“Online classes will take a little bit of getting used to, but the yoga will be the same – let’s give it a go and work it out together. At the end of the class, you’re welcome to stay online for an extra 30 minutes with me and any other participants who want to share anything/have a general chat.
How it works:
– email me at [email protected] to register, at least one hour before the first class you want to come to.
– I’ll send you a link and instructions to join the class(es). You just need to go to the Zoom website, click on ‘join a meeting’ and put in the code I give you.
– Find a quiet, private space and set up your computer so your camera sees as much of your body as possible (that needs the camera to be 2-3 meters away). If you don’t have space to do that, don’t worry, just put it where you can. If you don’t have a yoga mat, just have something soft for your knees.
– You can pay your donation after your first class, either for just that class or (preferably, to avoid lots of small transfers) for a block of 4 or 8 classes – just let me know when you’ve paid and how many it was for. I will send you my bank details for you to transfer payment (anyone joining us from the UK I have options to pay in £). You choose how much to pay. If you miss a class it can just roll over to the next one.

Classes are taught in English. The focus is on alignment, safety, and fun, on giving all your joints and muscles a work-out that can be as gentle or as challenging as you need it to be.”

ONLINE JAMS | Lisbon Irish Session Under Quarantine | FREE

In olden times, on any given boring Monday night, you could find a bunch of talented locals churning out some traditional Irish tunes at O’Gilin’s, our favorite (and the oldest) Irish pub in Lisbon.

Oh, how times have changed. O’Gilin’s has shut its doors indefinitely in the name of hygiene and peace. St. Patrick’s day 2020 in Lisbon was basically cancelled. And “the best pint of Guinness in town” has become but a sweet memory…

Luckily though, the lads and lassies behind Lisbon Irish Session won’t let a global pandemic keep them down. For the last few Mondays, they have been using their modern technology, violins, guitars, flutes, a bit of Irish luck, and the sheer power of will to keep the music alive.

Check out their Facebook page and Youtube channel to hear some defiance, Irish style. Updated roughly every Monday night, as per tradition.

China.
You’ve probably heard of it.
And, if you live in Lisbon, you probably know that the Chinese are slowly taking over this fine land, real estate style. But the Chinese-Portuguese connection actually goes way back.

Here’s what the São Roque Museum, organizers of this cross-cultural and historical art exhibit, explain:
“The reign of King John V (1706-1750) corresponded to the reigns of three Qing Dynasty emperors (Kangxi, Yonzheng and Qianlong) and was one of the most intense and relevant periods of the relationship between Portugal, Europe, and China. This period was equally striking for Macao‘s history and its quality as an international trading port between two empires, the Portuguese and the Chinese. The exhibition One King and Three Emperors – Portugal, China and Macao in the time of D. João V, curated by Jorge Santos Alves, marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Portugal and China, the 20th anniversary of the transfer of powers in Macau, and the 450th anniversary of the Macao Holy House of Mercy.

VISITING HOURS:
Monday: 14h-18h.
Tuesday to Sunday: 10h-12h and 14h-18h.

“There’s just something visceral about moving a puppet frame by frame. There’s a magical quality about it. Maybe you can get smoother animation with computers, but there’s a dimension and emotional quality to this kind of animation that fits these characters and this story.”
Tim Burton.
