Malta at Copenhagen festival

The foreign ministry has taken part in a European Cultural Festival organised by the European Union for the second time in as many months.

The event was organised by the Danish EU presidency at the famous Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.

Hundreds of visitors to the Maltese national stand received information about Malta, its institutions and way of life, through the various publicity brochures available.

On July 3, a seven member troupe from the YADA Dance Group gave the Danish public a spectacle of Maltese music and dance with the theme 'Malta - A heart from the Mediterranean' at the Tivoli's famous and historic Pantomime Theatre.

The programme was compered by Dr Joseph Chetcuti, who also played on his violin a number of popular Maltese hit tunes.

Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, together with Commission president Romano Prodi and European Parliament president Pat Cox attended the opening ceremony.

Malta's participation at the Tivoli was coordinated by the Maltese Embassy in Copenhagen and the Economic Affairs Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
