Get ready for a historical re-enactment like no other. Heritage Malta is organising another ‘In Guardia’ event this Sunday, 28th January at Fort St Elmo at 11:00 hrs. The parade will be held at Piazza D’Armi.

The parade usually involves around 50 re-enactors who portray an authentic event that happened quite frequently in Malta’s main fortifications during the time of the rule of the Order of St John. The re-enactment generally includes the inspection of the Fort and its garrison by the Grand Bailiff of the Order who was in charge of military affairs.

All re-enactors participating in the ‘In Guardia’ parade will be dressed in costumes and will perform a military drill to display the garrison’s state of readiness.

On the scheduled days of the parade, Fort St Elmo and the National War Museum will open to the public at noon. Visitors can either purchase tickets for the ‘In Guardia’ parade only or a combined ticket that includes the parade and the entrance to both For St Elmo and the National War Museum.

Tickets can be purchased at any Heritage Malta Museum or via their website. Heritage Malta passports and discount cards are not valid for these tickets.  

Normal admissions for Fort St Elmo and the National War Museum are allowed from 12:00 hrs till 18:00 hrs with the last admission being at 17:30 hrs.
