Exhibition

Following the positive response to the current exhibition ‘Behind Closed Doors: Fort St Angelo & the Royal Navy 1906-1979’, Heritage Malta is inviting the public to participate in the event ‘Memory Box’ which is being held at Fort St Angelo on Friday, 21st June.

A live interview with several former service personnel at HMS St Angelo will kick off this event. They will reveal more information about the roles and uses of the fort as a Royal Naval shore establishment. At the end of this interview, the public can interact with these veterans. Attendees can view the exhibition following this event and a selection of exhibition merchandise will also be available. On this day, the exhibition catalogue will be on sale at a reduced price.

This event is an opportunity for other individuals who have served at HMS St Angelo to meet their ex-colleagues and friends, and also to share their memories with Heritage Malta. A special set-up will be on site to film and record anyone who may wish to do so.

Those who would like to be interviewed and filmed on this day are invited to contact Heritage Malta through Principal Curator Matthew Balzan on [email protected]  

In the past 8 years, over 50 items were donated to the national collection by several former service personnel, including ship crests, sets of uniforms, naval documents and other memorabilia. These donations are also coming in during this exhibition which is enhancing a sense of belonging to this important phase in history, urging a number of individuals to donate their personal objects so that a part of their life could be shared, remembered, and safeguarded in the national collection. On this day, Heritage Malta officials will be present to receive any related memorabilia which the public may wish to donate.

Light nibbles and refreshments will be on sale during the event which will be held at The Egmont Hall at Fort St Angelo in Birgu.

Time: 6.30pm (the fort will close at 10.00pm). Free admission.
