Winter Party in Town

The Ministry for Culture is again organising the Winter Party in Town event to take place on Saturday 19th December as part of the ‘Christmas late night shopping experience.’ Events will be hosted at Casemates Square, John Mackintosh Square and Chatham Counterguard throughout the day. The main event at Casemates Square will start at 1.00pm and is scheduled to

finish at approximately 9.00pm. An all-weather stage will be set up for the occasion. The event has been carefully designed to make it a family-day event for all to enjoy.

This year’s headline act will be the internationally-renowned band REMEMBER QUEEN as part of their World Tour 2015. Vocalist Piero Venery is acclaimed as the world’s best double to the legendary Freddie Mercury. An amazing 2 hour musical tribute to one of the best bands in the world, the show includes a fantastic production with constant videos of QUEEN via a gigantic LED Screen. Local band FRONTIERS (formerly This Side Up) will be performing as main supporting act.

The main event will kick-off with local DJ Johnny Harper. The Valerga Brothers, international funky jazz band The Hula Hula, Danza Academy and the Gibraltar Academy of Dance will also

form part of this year’s line-up. An innovation on stage this year is that of a Star Wars animation spectacular featuring appearances by Darth Vader, the Storm Troopers and Princess Leia. They will be joined on stage by special guest the Iron Man.

Various children’s activities will also be on offer from 10.00am, including Santa’s Grotto from 14.30 until 16.00 and a Santa Pull organised by the Gibraltar Round Table. The event is organised by the Ministry for Culture and is supported by the Gibraltar Federation of Small Businesses (GFSB), the Chamber of Commerce and a number of local businesses.

The Ministry for Culture takes this opportunity to thank all sponsors for their support and looks forward to another successful fun-packed family event.
