With Gibraltar’s Tourist season slowly winding into it’s low season, yesterday’s launch of the second Gibraltar International Jazz Festival hopes to reel in further outsiders to Gibraltar, for an extended weekend of jazz music at the recently renovated Queen’s Theatre. In an attempt to up the ante following last year’s inaugural Jazz festival, the line up has seen the addition of well loved television presenter and jazz man, Jools Holland and former Spice girl, Mel C to this year’s line up.
The organisers of The Gibunco Gibraltar International Literary Festival regret to announce the cancellation of Professor Paul Preston's talk on his book "The Spanish Holocaust". The cancellation is due to Professor Preston's inability to travel to Gibraltar because of ill health.
The Ministry for Culture has announced that this year’s New Years Eve celebrations are to be organised, produced and staged by Gib Media. The Ministry insisted that it will be working closely with the company to provide an entertaining event.
Gibraltar’s first ever international literary festival runs from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October. Paul Preston, Ben Okri, Joanne Harris and Peter Snow, are some of the big name authors and speakers so be sure not to miss this varied programme of events.
The Ministry of Culture has today announced that the Gibraltar Drama Festival will take place at the Ince’s Hall Theatre between Monday 17th March and Saturday 22nd March 2014.
