Following the 11th Anniversary of its inception, which was celebrated last weekend, Il-Ħaġar Museum and Community Cultural Centre in Victoria’s Pjazza San Ġorġ continues with its rich programme of events. On Saturday 2nd March 2024 the Museum will be hosting a recital by Noel Beck (clarinet), Fiorella Camilleri (flute) and Anne Marie Podestà (harp). The trio will be performing works by Shostakovich, Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Faure, Bizet, and others. The Concert starts at 19:30 and, as is the Museum’s democratic policy, entrance is free. Seat reservations are recommended by sending an email to email@example.com. This recital forms part of the initiative Easter in Gozo organised by the Ministry for Gozo and Planning and is supported by the Cultural Heritage Directorate within the same Ministry. The audience can enjoy this evening of music while surrounded by the works of the current exhibition Unknown Prescription where paintings and photography by Maltese artists Mario Abela, Charles Balzan, and Justin Falzon “dialogue with artefacts” from Il-Ħaġar’s permanent collection. This exhibition remains open until Sunday 14th April 2024. The Museum is also currently exhibiting Joseph Vella’s works for woodwind until Tuesday 19th March 2024 in commemoration of the 6th Anniversary of his passing.
There’s always a reason to get Joyful & Triumphant At Country Terrace At Christmas
Christmas Dining in Gozo simply must include a trip to Country Terrace Restaurant. Giving your festive barometer a mega boost with a fun-filled lunch is always high on our priority list in the Winter months. In fact, we feel this Gozo restaurant hits the mark all year round, but Winter, has a particular magical energy about it doesn’t it?
The view on the terrace is still mesmerizing, you are pleasantly sheltered from the rain and the heaters unobtrusively dotted around each table match the warmth of the staff that makes for a superb dining experience.
Christmas Dining. Come Rain Or Come Shine
Our meal began with bright sunshine and blue skies, and ended in torrential rain but we didn’t care at all! In the rare days when the sky loses its colour on Gozo, the food at Country Terrace will always bring what’s needed. Just look at the vibrancy on these dishes!
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a fabulous festive Country Terrace experience!
We always make memories at Country Terrace. Really good ones! And we are always the last to leave! Nattering away at our table without a care in the world is the norm for us here and instead of feeling like we outstayed our welcome, we were offered blankets and a nightcap on the house so we could listen to the sound of the rain under the warmth of our heater.
That is exactly why we will always love Country Terrace,
