Jugs Malta and Island Hotels Group treated their numerous clients to an evening of merriment and mirth, followed by an after party, at an evening themed Scripted Tales at the Montekristo Estate a few days ago. More than 500 people attended.

Under a recently signed management agreement, MonteKristo Estate, the sprawling property in Hal Farrug, is the newest addition to Island Caterers’ list of exclusive venues. Island Caterers designed a fitting menu for the theme and waiting staff were dressed in period costume.

Montekristo provided the perfect set-up for the lavish medieval-themed occasion. Jugs Malta, the local event management and team-building company, pulled out all the stops. Guests were greeted by ‘knights’on horseback as they ventured down the straw-strewn avenue complete with quirky wooden stalls serving authentic food and a team of animators dressed as jesters, monks, fortune tellers, blacksmiths, peasants, armoured soldiers, and nobles. There was even an alchemist.

Local percussionist extraordinaire Dru Mayor and Elisa treated guests to a performance that provided a perfect symphonic transition from the medieval to more recent sounds of the after party.

“We have been in the business for a while now and we work closely with leading local businesses and destination management companies,” Jugs Malta director Josef Gafà explained. “The local business community is small which means we all need to collaborate. Jugs Malta believes in the importance of nurturing relationships and we always enjoy getting together to let our hair down and have some good old fun.”

Island Caterers executive director Raphael Cauchi explained how the caterer had been at the forefront of the local industry for many years thanks to its flexible and original product offering. With the support of Jugs Malta, Scripted Tales was an opportunity for Island Caterers to move away from the traditional uniforms and reception setup and showcase its flexibility to manage themed and large-scale events.
