Viva, Viva l-Karnival! Exhibition celebrating carnival icon George Zahra being held at the Inquisitors Palace
The history of Malta’s Carnival is a rich and intriguing one. Throughout the ages, many Maltese Carnival legends have contributed to make this tradition as beloved and iconic as it is today.
One of those people is none other than George Zahra!
As a tribute, Heritage Malta are currently hosting an exhibition celebrating his life’s work. The exhibition, ‘Viva, Viva l-Karnival – The George Zahra Donation’, is being held at the Inquisitors Palace in Birgu.
George was born right in the middle of Carnival, on the 5th February, 1935 and he has been an avid Carnival enthusiast ever since.
He has participated in the last 71 editions of Carnival, 52 of which he was as a member of the national organising committee.
The exhibition serves as a testament to his work as a participant, his complete dedication as an organiser and his extensive donation to Heritage Malta, partly on display in this exhibition.
If you wish to visit, you can do so on Tuesday, and from Thursday to Sunday, from 9am to 5pm until the 9th April, 2023.
You can also book online from beforehand on here.
