|Email item||Print item||
Fondazzjoni Belt Victoria is celebrating: Victoria – Her Life, Her Legacy. This year marks the bicentenary of Queen Victoria, who was born at Kensington Palace, on the 24th of May 2019.
They said her connections with Gozo include the fact that the main town became a city and had its name changed for her Golden Jubilee.
Fondazzjoni Belt Victoria “felt duty-bound” to mark this bicentenary and said that they chose the date of Saturday, the 1st of June, being about halfway between the actual date and Jum il-Belt Victoria, which is organised annually by the Local Council.
This special event will include a presentation by Rev. Geoffrey George Attard about the Empress, as well as short readings from British authors who visited our islands during her reign.
Victoria – Her Life, Her Legacy is at 11am, next Saturday and will be hosted at Il-Hagar museum, in St George’s Square, Victoria.
Entrance is free but booking on firstname.lastname@example.org is recommended.
