Gibraltar National Celebrations 2015

2015 GIBRALTAR NATIONAL CELEBRATIONS

The Self Determination for Gibraltar Group (SDGG) in conjunction with the Ministry of Culture and the Gibraltar Cultural Services, has announced the programme of events for this year’s Gibraltar National Celebrations.

Commenting on the announcement, the SDGG Chairman Richard Buttigieg has said:

‘The SDGG has worked closely with the Gibraltar Cultural Services to co-ordinate a wide-ranging series of events that should ensure an enjoyable three weeks of National Celebrations. As in the past, the emphasis remains very much on celebration, with varied entertainment, offering a range of shows and activities for all to enjoy in the spirit of this special occasion. I am confident that Gibraltarians of all ages will have much to enjoy in the lead-up to and on National Day itself.’
