November 5, 2018 @ 09:30 - November 17, 2018 @ 16:15
The Għaqda Ħbieb tal-Presepju – Malta will be hosting the first ever European Crib Convention to be held in the Maltese islands. Delegates from no less than ten different countries will be joining Friends of the Crib in Malta to celebrate Friendship in Diversity. The theme of the Convention will be “The Crib turns strangers into Friends“.
The Metropolitan Cathedral Museum, which dominates the square next to the Cathedral in Mdina, will feature in the Convention programme.
A gem of culture and artifacts in its own right, it will be hosting an exhibition of artistic cribs (presepi) by Maltese artisans and enthusiasts. No less than forty presepi varying in size, shape, and style, will be on show between the 5th and 17th November 2018. Entrance to the exhibition will be free to Museum visitors.
The organizers of this event wish to extend their appreciation to the Cathedral Chapter who, in its continued promotion of Malta’s culture and traditions, welcomed these proposals by the Għaqda Ħbieb tal-Presepju – Malta with open arms.
