Xaghratale, presented by the Xaghra Historical Reenactment Organisation (XHRO) gets underway tomorrow. This third edition will be entertaining audiences in the village of Xaghra, Gozo, every week until the 31st of August.
The show is a 20-minute spectacle of acting, dance, light effects and music giving glimpses of historical events related to the history of the village.
The open-air performances take place in Pjazza l-Vitorja, the village's main square, on Wednesday evenings at 9:00pm.
Visitors to the square will be transported back in time and venture with the village inhabitants during the Neolithic Age at Ggantija, the Great Siege of 1565, the plague and Second World War.
The performance is aimed to give tourists and local visitors an interesting insight both into famous as well as less-known events in which the village and its people played a role, thereby enriching the visitor's stay on Calypso's isle.
All this can be enjoyed while having a delicious meal or sipping a glass of good wine in one of the restaurants surrounding the square.
The performance is free and everyone is welcome to visit, linger a while and enjoy the atmosphere.
