DIN L-ART ĦELWA FESTA KEMMUNA ACTIVITY AT COMINO TOWER
The 1618 St Mary’s Tower on Comino will be packed with action during the Comino Fest taking place on the 19 and 20 August. Din l-Art Ħelwa Gozo and Comino volunteers have planned a packed programme for families and visitors alike that will see re-enactments organised for the occasion by the Compagnia San Michele who demonstrate the life and times of the 17th Century in authentic period costume. A Young People’s Heritage Challenge will test young visitors with a written quiz and volunteers will guide them on a treasure hunt in search of clues. Prizes and certificates will be awarded to successful participants.
The Tower will be open to Visitors on Friday 19th August between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. Living History in the early 17th Century by the Compagnia San Michele will take place between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. while at 7.30 p.m they will give a demonstration of the arms and armour of the time.
On Saturday 20th August, the Tower will be open from 10.30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Re-enactments by the Compagnia San Michele will be staged all day between 10.30 and 6 p.m. with a demonstration on arms and armour at 11 a.m.
Admission is free to these family action packed days but Din l-Art Helwa will be grateful for donations to the upkeep of the tower. With its 360 degree view over the Gozo Channel and the breathtaking sight directly over the Blue Lagoon, a trip to the roof is well worth the visit.
