Notte Bianca, Malta: An evening of the finest arts and culture


This October, when winter’s on the way and the days are darkening - those who want to prolong summer should head to Malta for a night of art and culture underneath a blanket of the Mediterranean sky.


Only three hours away, from many UK airports and with average temperatures for the time of year a positively balmy 22 degrees, it’s the perfect opportunity to soak up some Maltese culture.


Notte Bianca, will engulf the streets of Valletta, for one night only on the evening of Saturday 1st October 2011. Malta is delighted to be hosting the fifth of this annual, culturally rich event displaying and celebrating a not to be missed array of the finest arts and culture the city has to offer.


The baroque capital of the Truly Mediterranean isles will see museums, historical buildings, theatres and art galleries opening their doors for free, and welcoming guests to absorb the vast artistic and cultural diversity Valletta has to offer.


Visitors will be spoilt for choice; from visual stimulations of 3D street art and classic paintings by the likes of Caravaggio on display to exhibitions by young and aspiring artist. For music lovers, there will be styles to suit every taste, from the romantic melodies of Chopin, to the adrenaline pumping riffs of heavy metal Maltese bands. Open-air streets and piazzas will showcase some of the finest local and international artists and performers – with an atmosphere like no other.


All of Valletta, from City Gate to Fort St. Elma, will come alive on Notte Bianca, guaranteeing a memorable night that truly holds something for everyone. For further information please visit
