The darkness of the Real eclipses the economy of the brotherhoods of Jerez


The history of the brotherhoods and the Fair has always been in a relationship of ‘love and hate’. On the one hand, no one escapes that the source of income for a booth set up in the González Hontoria is very important importantes monies ’for many corporations. However, working the fairs was a discipline that many brotherhoods were forgetting. The rental of the module to a casetero is more profitable than setting up a whole logistics of organization and involvement of brothers to work the hard and long holidays. Finally, there are many brotherhoods that have the fair account as one more income while others work them to get up to ten times more profitability than those who prefer to have a rent to a hotelier. On the one hand, it is necessary to reinforce the economy, but on the other, it is a commitment that submits to hard work on days when the rest are partying.

Sovereign Power

The brotherhood of the Sovereign Power, after a three-year hiatus without working it directly, decided last year to retake the reins of the booth. For Inmaculada Vadillo, the corporation's older sister "both economically and in the environment that is created and the bonds of fraternity that the experience of the booth forges are very important."

The brotherhood planned to allocate all the benefits of the Fair to the brotherhood house that is intended to be built on a plot in La Granja that has already been awarded through an exchange of the Bishopric with the City Council.

“We will be affected by this important project that we were going to start. Fortunately, the credit was not yet signed. Everything will slow down now and we will have to wait for future months to see if we return to normal, "says Vadillo.

For the Sovereign Power, the income of the booth is a high percentage of the income that supports the brotherhood. "The injection of the Fair has no comparison with other types of income such as the payment of fees for the brothers," says the older sister.

The new line of income will include setting up a festival in September to mark the Merced festivity or organizing flamenco festivals. "In any case, you have to keep waiting because we also don't know when it will be possible to offer this type of event," adds Inmaculada Vadillo.

The Exaltation

Another brotherhood whose mystery step is said to smell of fried pepper and fairground omelette is Exaltation. The brotherhood of Las Viñas was immersed in the project of the new pall pass for the Concepción Coronada. "Not having the Fair is a setback in this project. It is an important setback, as can the zambombas, which we hope will not be suspended, "says Manuel Jesús Tristán, older brother of the Exaltation. "Many brothers are complying with a monthly contribution," adds Tristán, "but the Fair is a push that we needed to launch, as we had planned, the new stretcher, the canopy roof, the backstages, all the cordonería and the modification of the vents" . La Viñas was going to host this year one more module for the fair because the two that the brotherhood kept were too small. “The Fair, for the Brotherhood of Las Viñas, is a donation of the work done by the brothers. A contribution that is made through effort. This is how the pallium that the Blessed Virgin currently has was made and that is how we have conceived it in the meeting for this great project, ”said the older brother.

The forgiveness

Another brotherhood that has a significant increase in its income deposited in the González Hontoria is the brotherhood of Forgiveness. Eva Castañeda, older sister of the corporation, affirms that "the treasury depends to a large extent on this income, which is very important." However, thinking of supplementing this income with other activities is “still premature. The important thing now is to know how events will evolve. It is a time of uncertainty. But when we see the situation in the near future, we will have to reinvent ourselves to be able to correct this important income. ”

The Redemptive Mission, the Candelaria or this year the Health of San Rafael, are also brotherhoods that their brothers work with. A great injection of income that supposed in some corporations more than half of the total account. Now we will have to take another course. Manuel Jesús Tristán hits the key when he concludes by stating that “the brotherhoods have always needed a counter to carry out our projects. With this coronavirus, the counters are not allowed. So the picture is more complicated than it seems. "
