|Email item||Print item||
This year marks the Bicentenary of Queen Victoria, she was born at Kensington Palace, on the 24th of May 2019. Her connections with Gozo include the fact that the main town became a city and its name changed for her Golden Jubilee.
Fondazzjoni Belt Victoria has said that it “felt duty-bound” to mark this bicentenary – choosing the date of Saturday, the 1st of June – being about halfway between the actual date and Jum il-Belt Victoria, which is organised annually by the Local Council.
This occasion, which will consist of a presentation by Rev. Geoffrey George Attar about the Empress and short readings from British authors who visited our islands during her reign, is at 11am and will be hosted at Il-Hagar museum, in St George’s Square, Victoria.
Entrance is free but booking on email@example.com is recommended.
