En septembre prochain, Gareth visite Madrid.

Why not the future simple? Gareth visitera Madrid. Apologies, this has probably been addressed in another lesson, but it's not coming to me now.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Prochain / dernier = Next / last (durations)"

Bonjour Melody ! Here Le Présent is acceptable, like "Gareth is visiting Madrid next September" could be correct as well. However, I agree that Le Futur Simple would be better here, as this is not in the immediate future. I've decided to change this example accordingly. Merci et à bientôt !
