Malta Day UK 2018
On 8 September, we will be celebrating the 18th anniversary of Malta Day UK which as you probably know, is an annual event organised by the Malta Day UK Committee. This Committee is presided by the Malta High Commission in collaboration with representitives from different Maltese Associations in the United Kingdom. It is held to commemorate the feast of Our Lady of Victories (Il-Bambina) celebrating the triumph of the Great Siege of Malta of 1565..
Malta Day UK will start with a Fair of Maltese food, beverages and other artisan products, from 10am to 2pm at Westminster Cathedral Hall, Ambrosden Avenue, London SW1P 1QJ (Victoria Station is nearest tube/train station). At 2.30pm. His Excellency Mrg Paul Cremona O.P. Archbishop Emeritus of Malta will concelebrate Mass at Westminster Cathedral. This will be followed by a concluding ceremony of tributes and salutes to Our Lady in the Cathedral. We will be joined during Mass by the Gaulitanus Choir which hails from the island of Gozo and has performed abroad on a number of occasions.
The day’s events will be concluded at 8pm with a Gala Dinner and Dance at the Chartwell Suite, Churchill Hotel, 30 Portman Square, London W1H 7BH. In the flyer posted to you and on this website please find the booking form for the Dinner and Dance. Together with this letter and flyer posted to you, you will also find raffle tickets for the Grand Draw with many exciting prizes including three Holidays to Malta staying in some of Malta's most prestigious hotels. Your participation by purchasing tickets would be very much appreciated and will help enormously in fundraising for this annual event and continue sustaining our heritage and culture.
