History of Centre Cultural Sala Galà

From 1911 to1969: a dance hall
In 1910 Narcís Abellí i Dalmau, baker of Cassà de la Selva, bought three plots in Mel and Molí streets in order to build a dance hall. From 1911 to 1969 there were always dances.

From 1969: Sir Thoma’s
In 1963, Secundina Abellí i Bota, the owner of the building, sold it to Tomàs Grau i Balamaña. In the same year, the town voted in order to change the name Sala Galà into Sir Thoma’s. 1969 was the first year of the famous disco Sir Thoma’s.

From 1998: Centre Cultural Sala Galà
In 1998 the town hall of Cassà bought the building in order to transform it into the Centre Cultural Sala Galà (a cultural place). It was opened in 2003 and incorporated the library, the music school and the Josep Lloveras School of Art..

Càntut

The Càntut festival takes place on a weekend in a November in Cassà de la Selva and it is an event that gives life to the music of the old people.

The idea comes from the inventors and coworkers of the project Cançons i músiques dels avis, who created a website with 1000 recorded songs from the past. At that moment, they decided that they had to go one step beyond and Festival Càntut was born, taking place in Cassà.

Cassà was chosen because of its wide musical activity and the amount of associations that can benefit the project.

The aim of Festival Càntut is giving life to the songs that can be found on the website Càntut. Cançons i músiques dels avis. It also wants to help and get to know people, musicians, groups and associations who work in order to promote the Catalan musical heritage, especially helping the nearest one.

Different musical associations from town as well as the schools take place in the festival. During this weekend, there are conferences, exhibitions, concerts and other activities.

Nit del Cremat (Night of Cremat)

The Nit del Cremat (Night of Cremat) takes place on the closest Friday to Santa Tecla Fair. It consists of dancing “sardanes” in Plaça de la Coma and, during a break, drinking “cremat” (an alcohòlic drink made of rum, coffee and spices).

Most years, there is an specific “sardana” performed called El foc de Castelló composed by Antoni Agramunt.

La Nit del Cremat (Night of Cremat) is a historic activity of the association Amics de la Sardana. It was born in order to revive the fair of Santa Tecla, which had been not celebrated for many years. As one of the symbols of Santa Tecla was the fire, the association tried to find an event containing this element. This is where the Nit dels Cremat (Night of Cremat) came from.

Cultural Events

The Centre Cultural Sala Galà and the Sala Centre Recreatiu are the cradles of culture in Cassà de la Selva.

Most of the cultural events, auditions and talks organised in the town take place in these two places, which can hold hundreds of people.
