3. An evening with two legendary reggae bands
Reggae Ambassadors Third World will be setting the stage on fire, with Jamaican-bred Inner Circle also headlining the concert.
With 10 Grammy nominations under their belt, Third World is the longest running reggae band of all time. If that wasn’t enough, the band has shared the stage with major names in the music industry like Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Santana, Bono of U2, Sting, The Police, Whitney Houston, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Jimmy Buffet, Eric Clapton and Marc Anthony.
Inner Circle, the Grammy award-winning quintet, are renowned for their blend of pop-oriented Jamaican beats and pop energy.
Book your tickets here before it’s too late!
4. An Adult Panto is here to make your summer even hotter
Strictly for adults, Steve Hili’s Adult Panto is the opposite of all the traditional ones that we know and love. Well, not exactly opposite; it’s still hilarious AF.
Bracing everyone for a sixth edition, The Adult Panto has managed to build a cult following with its no-holds-barred comedy and tingling satire. If you’re a fan of dirty late night comedy, this silly reflection of sex, politics and lots of makeup is definitely up your alley, join in this year’s sinful show of Sindirella.
5. VII (Sette)
Teatru Malta, The New Victorians, and a list of some of Malta’s most talented creatives return for a final weekend after their explosive debut last week.
This show commemorates the riots that took place on the seventh day of June in 1919, with a contemporary twist.
Tickets are priced at €15, with concessions at €12.
THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN and they're head over heels for VII (Sette)! Take a look for yourselves! ❤️😍While the VII (Sette) team take a well deserved rest after three standing ovation worthy performances, we'll let our audiences do the talking for us.
