La Noche en Blanco, one of the most anticipated events for lovers of culture in Seville, is falling. The event, which this year celebrates its seventh edition, will open on Friday, October 5, at night, the program for the cultural autumn of the city. Under the organization of the citizen collective 'sevillasemueve', the White Night of this year brings together more than 160 activities spread throughout the geography of the city of Seville, especially the center.
There is a wide range of disciplines to choose from, ranging from visits to the city's rich heritage, cultural routes, theater, concerts, painting courses, readings in bookstores, music and dance, activities related to photography and the audiovisual world or with the science and engineering, and literary activities.
Of course, you have to go out to the street with enthusiasm and also with some patience. Last year, Noche en Blanco gathered more than 80,000 people in the streets and participating spaces. It is likely that the figure will be repeated or exceeded this year, so queues are expected in some monuments and many crowded places.
Some tips to enjoy the Night in White and not die trying
Most of the activities are carried out in the center, Triana and also by Nervión, so it is advisable to forget about the car. Walking, cycling or public transport are the best options. Tussam and Metro de Sevilla will reinforce their services during the night and early morning of Friday, October 5 (the bulk of the activities are carried out from 8:00 pm to 2:00 pm), even the subway will extend their schedules.
Go with a planning done (or enjoy the free will of the night but without getting frustrated by the queues). If you are one of those who prefer to play it safe, it is better to plan. For this it is advisable to take a look at the official website of nocheenblanco.org.
If the activities are by reservation, do not leave everything for the last minute. Many of them, like the dramatized visits to the Artillery Factory, the great novelty for this year sold out during the first hours. Or those of the Real Alcázar. But there are many others that have not been exhausted yet or that do not need a previous reservation.
What's free calls attention, but there are some activities that have a symbolic price that help cover the expenses of the night schedule, such as the Navigation Pavilion or the Aquarium, which other days charge the most expensive ticket. Surely in these activities there will be fewer queues. And as always remember from the organization: most activities continue to exist the rest of the year. The Night in White is a claim and a showcase of all of them. It is impossible to visit more than 160 activities in one night. Consume culture the rest of the year.
