Among the attractions at Mellieħa Nights this year there will be a silent auction of six painting by artists from Mellieħa and an Italian hairstylist. Proceeds will be going to the MCCF.

Supported by the Malta Tourism Authority and the Parliamentary Secretariat for Local Government, the first evening will be held in the Mellieħa Sanctuary courtyard under the patronage of President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca.

An 80s and 90s concert will take place in Mellieħa’s parish square on Friday. On Saturday, chef Andrew Farrugia, in collaboration with the Imperial Band Club, will be preparing a 400-foot-long apple strudel. Proceeds from the sale will also be in aid of the MCCF.

The main roads and squares in Mellieħa will be pedestrianised on Saturday and next Sunday. Both nights will feature arts, music, culture, sport and food. For motorsport fans, there will also be static car displays, drifting races and an offroading show.

The Sanctuary of Our Lady in Mellieħa, which is over 2,000 years old, will be open to the public and hosting choral concerts. The locality’s World War II shelters will be open, with an accompanying exhibition and guided tours.

Restaurants will also be offering gastronomic experiences along the main roads, which will be set up with tables and chairs for those wanting to dine al fresco.

The event kicks off on Thursday and is on until next Sunday.
