Thanks, not sure what day we were doing the Orchid house but now i`ve seen your post sunday or monday may be on the horizon.

Is parking likely to be a pain? Is the feria easy enough to find from the Orchidarium?

Orchid House closed on Mondays, mantalk.

The fairground is about 20 minutes walk - 1.5 km says Google Maps.

Continue up the Calle Terraza right to where it meets a major road with a roundabout. Turn left there and follow this road (avenida de Andalucia) past the park and then just opposite the mural of the girl watering the tree, turn right up the hill, calle San Fernando. Keep on here over a roundabout by a football ground, past another mural, to a big roundabout with a petrol station. Turn right there and you'll get to the Fairground in no time.

Parking can be a pain, yes.
