Sir: I was fascinated to read your article 'The international culture club' (6 January), on the role of the cultural attache. As a member of this small club, I am happy to confirm that my role is a long way removed from the murky world of espionage and very much devoted to sharing the richness of Spanish culture, as part of creating greater international understanding.

This will be greatly in evidence during the 1994 Spanish Arts Festival. Beginning in February, a remarkable programme of every element of Spanish culture, including music, dance, film, painting and exhibitions, will feature prominently until the summer. I hope that as many as possible will participate in and enjoy the festival and that this will add additional dimensions to people's perception of Spain.

Yours sincerely,


Cultural Counsellor
