The council explained that due to delays in government funding for cultural events and activities, it is not able to plan the large-scale event as it requires a minimum of six months of preparation to coordinate all the local and foreign artists who participate.

“[We have] been chasing the Department for Local Government since last November 2016… Without such security of funding at the earliest stage, large scale professional events are impossible to organize.”

“The Tas-Sliema Local Council remains committed to reorganize this event in the year 2018, should the funding conditions by the Department of Local Government be sent towards the end of the year, as was always the case over the past our years.”
