June 14 - A Bigger And Better Calentita Night

The Ministry of Culture has been working closely with the ‘Word of Mouth’ production company in order to provide a more entertaining programme for ‘Calentita Night.’ This year’s gastronomy festival will be held on Saturday 22nd June, starting at 8pm.

In line with a manifesto commitment to improve the event, this year’s festival- goers can expect a variety of spectacular entertainments rather than a programme which focusses largely on a fireworks display.

After listening to people’s comments, the organisers have guaranteed that this year’s event will be much bigger and better. This year’s changes include:

- Moving the event from Friday to Saturday in order to allow our local Jewish Community to participate

- Extending the event into Market Place which will have its own full programme of entertainment

- Providing an Aerial and Musical Spectacular

- Increasing the number of tents from 23 to 31.

- Providing a Long Table in Market Place to seat 100 people

- Providing extra tables, benches and chairs in Market Place for the elderly

and wheelchair users.

- Providing an Arts and Crafts market

The evening’s programme will be as follows:

On the Casemates Square Stage:

21.00 – Dance Performance Urban Dance

21.45 – Dance Performance Urban Dance

22.30 – Aerial and Musical Spectacular by Art in Movement
