On Saturday, the 27th of March from 10.00am to 11.30am, Ms Corinne Farrugia, a tourism student who is currently gaining work experience at Bir Mula Heritage, and her group animated this event. All children from the age of 5 till the age of 8 were invited for this show in Maltese. The puppet show portrayed a basic overview of the Great Siege of Malta which occured in 1565. All children enjoyed listening to the story of such a historical event which happened in Malta 445 years ago. As a matter of fact, the event is still tied deeply to the Maltese culture as it enhances the Maltese identity. Children also had the opportunity to learn the history of Malta in a different, entertaining and educational way.

On Friday, the 26th of March at 8.30pm His Excellency Dr. Ugo Mifsud Bonnici, President Emeritus of Malta, officially inaugurated a photographic exhibition by the photographer Reuben Chircop. The theme of the exhibition is Cospicua, the city where Bir Mula Heritage is located.

The video shown below was taken by Christopher Bugeja during the inauguration.

The exhibition will remain open to the general public on Saturdays and Sundays between 10.00am and noon (till the end of July).

On Thursday, the 18th of March 2010 at 7.00pm Terry Duggan delivered a talk at Bir Mula Heritage about the earliest surviving portrait drawn from life (discovered on a lead seal) in Antalya Province (Turkey) in the year 2000. The implications regarding both the naturalistic portraiture in the Islamic world and also on the formative stages of the Italian Renaissance were discussed.
