On the 8th of September, Victory Day, Heritage Malta will open the doors of the majestic Fort St Angelo to the public at a reduced admission price of €3. This event will include access to the upper parts of the fort which are administered by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

In remembrance of this day, Heritage Malta has prepared a programme of activities at Fort St Angelo. Two masses will be held – one at 10:00 in the Chapel of the Nativity of the Virgin and another one at 12:00 in the Chapel of St Anne. Following the first mass, at 11:00, there will be a commemoration at the Victory of the Great Siege monument, with the participation of the National Festivities Committee. This will be followed by a Sea Cadets demonstration at Upper St Angelo.

The afternoon will be enlivened with several displays and historical re-enactments. These will be provided by Show of Arms, Compagnia San Michele, the Historical Re-enactment Group of Malta, the Malta Historical Fencing Association, Battlefront Living History Group, Malta Command WW2 Living History Group, and Battlefields Living History Re-enactment Troops.
