A new exhibit has been set up by the Gozo Philatelic Society in their showcase at Il-Hagar Museum in Victoria.
The Society said that the subject of the exhibit is taken from this year’s Astra Theatre Golden Jubilee commemorated by MaltaPost – so they are displaying a range of covers and stamps featuring bands and band clubs.
Non-philatelic interest will also be kindled by vintage band concert programmes – even going as far back as the early 20th century.
The museum is located in St George’s Square, Victoria, Gozo. Opening hours are 9am-5pm seven days a week – and there is no entrance fee.
The museum itself is preparing a range of events – beginning from the 23rd of February – to celebrate its 5th anniversary, details of the programme will be available closer to the date.
