Foco Famílias or a rewarding weekend for families by Porto Municipal Theatre

This weekend, on 12 and 13 December, Porto Municipal Theatre (TMP) presents the fourth edition of Foco Famílias. This is an online event, suitable to the ongoing circumstances and a rather creative way to welcome families to TMP’s celebration of leisure time with our loved ones. The weekend activities come in all shapes, as it brings along performances to enjoy as a family, recipes to make the mouth water, dance and even talking over the phone with a giant sloth.

“Tempo" aka “Time” is the theme for this year’s edition, presented exclusively online. All proposals are available, for free, during 48 hours at the Theatre’s webpage. What a wonderful way to spend quality time indoors with each and very ones’ families.

The purpose is to foster moments to boost union and ways to stay together, even if one must stand apart, owing to the ongoing public health crisis.
