Żejtun to celebrate Żejtun Heroes Day – nine persons to be awarded Ġieħ iż-Żejtun
Żejtun Local Council will be presenting a Musico-Literary evening with the aim of celebrating Żejtun Heroes Day, tomorrow at 8.00 p.m. in Ġnien l-Għannejja Żwieten, also known as Ta’ San Girgor. This will be a special occasion as Żejtun has this year been given the title of European Destination of Excellence.
The evening will include Maltese music with the vocal accompaniment of Miriam Christine Borg, who will also be interpreting a number of songs from the new album ‘Dil-Mara’.
The evening will also include readings from the best literary works from every category submitted for the 2020 Literary Competition, and two books will be published with participating works in this competition.
Once again the Ġieħ iż-Żejtun award will be presented to those who have worked on behalf of Żejtun and its residents on local, national and international levels. A total of nine awards will be made, including for Active Ageing, Flame of Youth, Safeguarding Cultural Heritage and Sportsperson of the Year.
The evening is expected to promote all that is Maltese, by highlighting what the Maltese language can offer. An evening which should go down well with those who hold dear everything that makes us Maltese.
