The event will also host local upcoming band CRIMSON CLOVER the band has performed on the Min Stage at this year’s Gibraltar Calling Music Festival and later on this month will perform at London Gibraltar Friends Festival held at Camden Town.

We are also happy to announce that the Gibraltar Federation of Small Businesses (GFSB) are supporting this event and have encouraged their members to remain open and enjoy the festivities.
The GFSB Chairman Mr Julian Byrne said:

Events like these encourage locals to spend more time in our city centre and are welcomed. Both Ministries would like to thank all the private sponsors for supporting this year’s event and kindly invite the general public to attend in large numbers as in previous editions and enjoy this pre-Christmas family day event.
The Minister for Business and Tourism, the Honourable Vijay Daryanani MP said: “We are delighted to support this event that marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
