Where should we begin to tell you about the event dedicated to Todorovden? From the preparation that lasted months for participants and organizers?! From the word of mouth that took dozens of hours to write and post, send out information and spread word of mouth?! From setting the stage for what happened today?! Or from the welcoming of the thousands of visitors who came from different parts of Bulgaria to see and hear about the "Horses of the Bulgarians"?!
If a thing is only an idea, it will remain only an idea. But if the idea leads to a lot of work, desire and dedication from everyone involved, it becomes something wonderful.
First of all, we cannot fail to note the support and willingness of the Municipality of Sliven and the municipal leadership to stand behind each of our projects. It is not even doubted by them that the event is worth it and Sliven deserves it. The holiday was fully financed by the Municipality of Sliven. The maintenance of the site is carried out entirely by the Municipality of Sliven. And all activities are fully and solely supported by the Municipality of Sliven.
The participants - Dimitar Trukanov and his school "Madarski Konnik", Jasmin Parvanov and the Association for the Restoration and Preservation of Traditions "Avitokhol", Boris Borisov and the Horse Base "Borisovi", Milen Petrov and the School of Ancient Military Arts "Velichie", all these people made the celebration unforgettable and gave the audience a spine-tingling experience.
The horses – Mag, Kalin, Canas, Castro, Valcho, Zamina and the dog Leo brought tradition to life, recreated history and made the ground beneath our feet pulsate.
We would also like to pay attention to the students and teachers of the Vocational High School of Hospitality and Tourism "Acad. Nedelcho Nedelchev". No strings attached, no time to prepare, a week before the event we turned to them for help and they were there - smiling, ready to work, wonderful!
Finally, it's the audience's turn, that mesmerizing audience. That you were so many, that you brought your children, that your eyes shone means everything to us. It makes us feel satisfied with our work, that we are working in the right direction and that we will leave a mark. You inspire us, motivate us, encourage us to develop and do more and more.
We are a small team, but with a great desire to give more of ourselves and challenge ourselves. We accept Tuida as home, work as a mission, results achieved as a victory, and your grades as a gift. There are two new members in our united team today, for them it was their first appearance, their first work in the field and their first contact with the public. We congratulate them on the professionalism they have shown, even though they have just touched everything.
Follow us, talk about Tuida fortress, keep and share our events with friends. We promise it will be worth it!

VII Medieval festival "Remember the glory - Tuida 2023"

A medieval assembly "Remember the glory" is over, but it will forever remain in our memories. An experience we went through together. We laughed, we cried, we were proud, we remembered together.
For us, it was a challenge that we set ourselves, but without the support of many people we could not have done it. First of all, the Municipality of Sliven stood behind the idea 100%. We said we want more participants, we want a richer evening program, we want more than anything, and the Management of the Sliven Municipality replied "DO IT". Without such a strong and supportive ally in our ideas, Tuida would not be what it is today.
There is no need to describe the merits of the participants in the event, it is obvious that everyone gives more than desired. The charge that each of them carries is inexhaustible and contagious. The rating they gave us means a lot to us. We deliver exactly the words we heard "Best event of the year", "Excellent organization", "Wonderful festival" and more…
The participants in the evening program, we want to mention each of them by name - Bulgarian School of Ancient Military Arts "Velichie", NFA "Bulgare" Fire and light show "Paljachi", LASER SHOWS - Bulgaria, they all made us cringe, cry, to admire and feel proud of being Bulgarian.
We have always said of our audience that they are great, but in the days of the Remember the Glory Medieval Council you were amazing, searching, inquisitive, supportive, grateful, responsive. You deserve all the effort we put into surprising you.
To those who took care of our food, a huge "THANK YOU", everything was up to par and with the required quality and speed of service.
Last but not least, we express our admiration and admiration for everyone who helped us in the event:
Association "Material art club- Ratina" - co-organizer of the event; Club of battle arts "Griffon" - organizer of the archery tournament; Zhivko Lazarov - conducting archery with the audience; Milen Petrov – our amazing host; Pierre Leonard – organizer of the fighting tournament; Hotel Mechta, Hotel Atlantic, Hotel Brilliantin, Hotel Gorski kut, Hotel Credo, Student dormitories - the accommodation places that sheltered our participants; SNC " The dawn of Tuida" - sponsor of horse demonstrations; Anton Dechev – photographer of the event; Kurti Karagenov – provided the straw bales for the event; Irrigation systems Middle Tundzha branch - provided wood for the event; Manuela Vasileva - calligrapher"; Municipal enterprise "Landscaping and cemetery parks" - site maintenance; Svetomir Minchev - translations; M-art EOOD - production of the medals, certificates and advertising materials for the event; "Albatross" company - provided the ropes for the fences.

45 years of the first "Signal" concert

How to describe this 19th of July?!!
45 years of music, 45 years of excited hearts, 45 years of SIGNAL!
And they chose our stage, and our audience, and there were under our sky.
But let's start with those people that no one sees, but they are there in the hot sun building a stage, taking care of the perfect sound and light, and they are there long before everyone, and they stay long after everyone. We can say about them great machines, professionals, APPLAUSE.
The time is 7:30p.m, the tickets are "sold out", but people keep coming, ready to stand even in a corner but to be there and touch the GREATS!
At 8:00 p.m., the warm-up group "Elite" took the stage with vocalist Ogi Tsolov, known to the public as the vocalist and frontman of the groups "Faktor", "Agate", "Oasis" and Stonehenge. The audience hungrily took the first rock chords and rewarded the band with applause and a lot of emotion in their eyes.
And it was the turn of the ETERNAL, the UNFORGETTABLE, the AGELESS – GROUP SIGNAL!
"Signal" is a Bulgarian rock band founded in Sofia in June 1978 by Yordan Karadjov, Hristo Lambrev, Rumen Spasov and Georgi Kokalanov.
The band recorded and released their first album "Eternal Crossroads" in 1979, selling 320,000 copies. In their 45-year career, they released studio albums and performed thousands of concerts.
It is an indescribable feeling to meet people - idols of several generations. To sing with them, to vibrate with them on one frequency.
Finally, we want to say a huge thank you to our audience, as always faithful, as always in great spirits, as always there, in the packed amphitheater. It is a real pleasure for us to welcome this audience.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We are waiting for you again!
