info@culture.gi  +350 20075569


Venue: John Mackintosh Hall, Main Street

The first event to mark the 75th anniversary of the evacuation of civilians from Gibraltar during WWII is an exhibition on the theme “Honouring a generation”. It will be officially opened by Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia this evening at the John Mackintosh Hall and will cover the first evacuation to French Morocco in May 1940 and the subsequent re-evacuations to London, Madeira, Jamaica and Northern Ireland.

 “This exhibition is the first in a series of events that the Government will organise to honour the generation that lived through those turbulent years,” explained Dr Joseph Garcia.

“The forced evacuation of Gibraltar’s women, children, elderly and infirm following the outbreak of the Second 

World War was a landmark in the history of Gibraltar and a spur to our political and constitutional development,” he said. 

The exhibition is made up of some 500 photographic exhibits which have been provided courtesy of 

Joe Gingell and has been set up and will be manned by Government Archivist Anthony Pitaluga, and the staff of the archives.

Dr Garcia believes it is only fitting that the Government should honour those who took part and the memory of those who are no longer with us. 

“Over 700 persons have registered as former evacuees in the Evacuation website and a number selected at random, have been invited to attend the opening of the exhibition tonight, representing those who were sent to London, Madeira, Jamaica and Northern Ireland.”

The exhibition will also include an interactive computer display which will re-produce the Evacuation section of the website of the National Archives. This will allow those who visit the exhibition to search for themselves or their relatives and to retrieve the evacuation data on the spot. 

The original evacuation register will also be on display. The exhibition will also feature a number of display cabinets containing original evacuation material. A 1940s kitchen of the kind used by the people in the evacuation is on loan from the Gibraltar Museum.

Local trio Mount Opera will sing contemporary songs of the 1940s. There will also be recordings of interviews with people who formed part of the evacuation, telling of their experiences.

The exhibition will open to the public as from Tuesday 12 May and will run until Thursday 28 May.

A SPECIAL EVENING WITH STEVE HOGARTH & FRIENDS 

CONCERT

Marillion frontman Steve Hogarth will return to Gibraltar for a unique concert that promises to be

unlike any other of his solo performances. The incomparable setting of Saint Michael’s Cave is the

venue for a concert that has already attracted international interest, such is the anticipation for this

special musical event taking place on Saturday 30th May.

The concert, announced today by promoters GibMedia, is fully supported by Gibraltar Cultural

Services and HM Government of Gibraltar and has been made possible thanks to the contribution of

the event’s partners and main sponsors, Isolas and Fiduciary. In addition, the organisers are grateful to

Gibtelecom, Lewis Stagnetto Limited, GibOil, Sovereign Group and Chesterton for sponsoring this

event that forms part of the Gibraltar Spring Festival of Art and Culture.

Steve Hogarth - also known as ‘h’ - is a gifted singer, songwriter and musician who has fronted the

legendary Marillion for over 25 years, helping reinvigorate and constantly redefine the band’s sound

via a succession of inventive, emotional albums like “Brave”, “Marbles”, “Seasons End” or the more

recent “Sounds That Can’t Be Made”. A vibrant musical force, to those who already love Marillion,

they’re something special; to everyone else they're a love affair waiting to happen.

Central to the appeal and success of the Progressive Rock legends over the past 25 years has been the

unmistakable voice and charisma of Steve Hogarth. It was in 2006 that he first embarked on his ‘h

Natural’ solo project, a series of intimate shows featuring just himself and a piano that already graced

Saint Michael’s Cave almost a decade ago and King’s Chapel last year. A good friend of Gibraltar,

Steve was intent on returning: “This will be my fourth time performing in my beloved Gibraltar. Last

year’s Literary Festival gig in the King’s Chapel was truly special for me and I came home with that

rare feeling that I had ‘nailed it’. Must be something in the water… I immediately began hustling to

return, so the chance to play once again in the unique space that is St Michael’s Cave is, well, icing on

the cake. Unlike my usual strictly-solo shows, this time my son, Nial, will join me on stage to play

cajon, and I’m also thrilled to have the fabulous Dave Gregory on hand to play guitar. Can’t wait.”

Nial is an accomplished drummer and this will be the first time father and son perform together,

although Dave Gregory is no stranger to working with Steve. A member of the band XTC for 19 years,

performing on the hits “Making Plans For Nigel”, “Senses Working Overtime” and twelve studio

albums, as well as recording with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Take That’s Mark Owen, Dave is well

known to Marillion fans through his work on Steve Hogarth’s solo album “Ice Cream Genius” and as a

member of Steve’s star-studded h Band. The addition of these special guests will give a different, novel

feel to what is already a show that will appeal to any music lover and not just Marillion fans. Warming

the audience will be the attractive vocals of Megan Dallas, who makes a welcome return to Gibraltar,

before Steve works his magic via a repertoire that will be culled from his 25 years with Marillion but

will also include covers of songs that have touched him throughout his life. Steve will interact with the

audience, accept requests and fill the outstanding acoustics of the Cave with the sounds of David

Bowie, Kate Bush or John Lennon.

This is not the usual ‘h Natural’ show. This is different. For one show only and exclusively in

Gibraltar, this is h (Super)Natural. It’s going to be special. It’s going to be unique. It’s going to

be unforgettable.

Tickets, which include a coach transfer to and from the Cave, are priced at £20 and are available to

purchase from Music Corner as well as online at www.buytickets.gi. Further details on the concert can

Dance Workshop

INTERNATIONAL DANCE WORKSHOPS

The Gibraltar National Dance Organisation is pleased to announce that professional dancers from the Errol White Dance Company will be travelling to Gibraltar to carry out a series of dance workshops. The dance workshops that will be conducted by Errol White and Davina Givan, will take place at the Tercentenary Sports Hall on the 6th & 7th June 2015. It is expected that over 150 dancers will benefit from this educational experience.

The Errol White Company seeks to produce unique dance works, with emphasis on authentic movement vocabulary and how the vocabulary of the body can be used as an abstract language.

Within EWC workshop participants will work on a wide range of repertoire that will include company class, creative work, and choreography. The sessions will build upon participants’ existing dance skills and experience, and offer opportunities to explore a range of ideas through creative, contemporary dance.

Class work will focus on skeletal alignment; articulate placement and core stability. Errol and Davina will lead the dancers to move fluidly with precision, power and strength facilitating a neutral and controlled understanding of the body’s physicality in performance. These classes provide an invaluable opportunity for the participants to fully concentrate on their own physicality within thestructures of class.

GNDO Development Officer Adrian Lopez said:

‘I am delighted that my friends Errol and Davina, who I used to train and work with professionally, will be travelling to Gibraltar to share their talent and experience with our dance community.

There are a lot of talented dancers and choreographers in our community. I believe sometimes you need to offer them different styles or different ways in creating movements. This could be very refreshing for dancers as well as teachers; it would certainly take them away from their daily dancing environment, and surely give them the extra bit of inspiration.’

The daylong workshops with classes in Modern and Contemporary Dance will be adapted to the students’ abilities so that they can perform in front of an audience of dance teachers, parents and friends. The workshops are open to young students of all abilities aged seven onwards. The GNDO calls on all dance enthusiasts not to miss this educational opportunity. 

The workshops will cost £10 per class or £15 for both days. For further information and timetables please contact the GNDO on telephone 58069000 or e-mail: gndo@gibtelecom.net or visit the On Pointe Dance Shop. Workshops are restricted to 50 dancers per class so register early to avoid disappointment. 

Closing date for entries is Monday 1st June 2015.
