Events And Activities Happening In Malta

Malta’s calendar of annual events is a varied and colourful affair. The calendar is heralded in by commemorating the shipwreck on the island of St Paul, one of Malta’s patron saints, on the 10th of February. Folklore, religious, and international competitions lead the way into the Village festa season which reaches its peak in June till early September. There is only a brief lull before the Festive Season, starting in early December.

In Malta, theatre has an all-year-round programme, and includes opera, concerts, recitals, plays and festivals. These mainly take place at the historic Manoel Theatre and the Mediterranean Conference Centre, both in Valletta. Organ and choral recitals are also held at St John’s Co-Cathedral and St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Valletta or at the Cathedral in the old capital, Mdina.
