The Convent will once again open its doors to the public when Sir James and Lady Dutton will host the popular Convent Open Day on Saturday 27th June.

Throughout the afternoon there will be displays by the Gibraltar Defence Police Dog Section and children’s activities, including a bouncy castle, a climbing wall, static paintball and performances by the Christian Santos Choir.

Proceeds from this year’s Open Day will go towards the charity for Research into Childhood Cancer.
