From the 4th till the 7th of October, Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna – the Malta Heritage Trust will be hosting The Notre Dame Gate Book Fair. A vast selection of military history, general history, maritime, aviation, children’s, WWI and WWII books will be available to purchase at special prices. The Fair is going to be held at Notre Dame Gate, Vittoriosa. During the fair we will be hosting talks on various history and art-related subjects. A great fair for all the family. We look forward to welcoming you. Stay tuned for more updates.
The aim of this fair is not just to promote the sale of books but also serve as a platform for like-minded people with a keen interest in Maltese history, naval and military historical studies and heritage to meet, discuss and share ideas and knowledge. As result, the fair will feature a vast amount of books, an art exhibition with a historic theme, public lectures, guided tours of Notre Dame Gate, hands on sessions covering historic themes and historic food.
Refreshments available throughout the day.
