Various stages will be erected, each one offering a different live drama. Maltese traditional songs (including Ghana), marches from various Maltese bands as well as shows set up by known singers and promoting fresh new local talent will all be on offer for you to enjoy. The shelter beneath the police station will also be open for the second time after the organisers cleaned it up last year.
