Nikolas Ventourakis, the current resident at Blitz, will be launching Rituals For Our Safety, an exhibition the deals with all the different notions of safety; from personal rituals we create to make ourselves feel safe, to wider reactions of states and societies like the recent Muslim Ban in the USA.

A visual artist who lives and works between Athens and London, Nikolas has come across similarities between Malta and islands like Cyprus and has found the perfect opportunity and place to bring his art to life.

This Saturday, New Look at The Point will be offering free customised sew-on badges on denim pieces. Taking style cues from the 90s and adding a sophisticated touch of embroidery detail and customised charm, this is the best opportunity to make the most of the denim revival.

An alternative party with a couple of bands

Alternative party organizers Sick of Ants are back with a bang, and this time, they're bringing the amazingly fun Massacre House Party with them. The night will also feature a couple of DJs like Trackage Scheme's Ben Vincenti and duo newcomers NAANGS supporting the headlining band.

Sunday 5th:

A Sunday afternoon party for International Women's Day

Legendary promoters BLANK are back with another one of their famous Sunday afternoon parties, this time celebrating International Women's Day at the newly refurbished Madliena Lodge. This one is definitely going to be sold out, so get ready to prebook. 

Relive the medieval life of Mdina with a free interactive tour

Compagnia San Michele, with the support of the Malta Tourism Authority, is inviting everyone to join for a free interactive tour in Mdina. During this 45 minute tour, visitors can meet different characters representing people who roamed the streets of Mdina during the 15th century.
