The annual Sports Festival began in the early 1940’s as a healthy and wholesome replacement to the Carnival which the authorities had banned after pressure from the Church. To the delight of many and dismay of a few, the Sports Festival continued many of the banned activities under new titles: the forbidden masked ball now became a costume dance. The event was later marketed across as an opportunity to escape the February cold of northern Europe and enjoy an early taste of summer on the Costa Del Sol, a sentiment well captured in this lovely 1950’s poster.

The poster is in good condition, complete and only minor, superficial nicks along the vertical edges. The colours are bright and strong. For anyone who likes their fun in the sun with a twist of subversion, this is for you.
