The turn of the New Year is for many a new beginning, a time to start all over again and begin afresh. This is a very exciting time, a brand New Year with a whole set of events and surprises around the corner. Here we will be the discussing the beauty of 2020 with events that will be happening in the beginning of the year. But be sure to make your own research to just in case you find something that we have missed!

New Years Celebrations

New Year in Malta is just one massive party. A lot of venues will be hosting their parties, so you will have your fair share of places to go to. If you did not book your place, or just not keen on going to parties, Paceville is packed with bars, pubs and clubs which all be having their own special night where New Years will be celebrated in a unique fashion. 

Besides Paceville, the capital city Valletta will be having a beautiful New Years celebration with fireworks and crowds of people gathering to enjoy the time together. A friendly suggestion would be to book a taxi from before. Firstly, you will probably be drinking for Nye and secondly, if you will not be drinking, there will be loads of people with cars. Traffic around densely populated areas will be horrible, instead of driving it will be less hassle to book a taxi.


Pantomimes usually start during mid-December but they ripple onto January, having a few shows after the New Year. There are many famous theatre companies which host panto. Most notably are MADC and Masquerade. These shows offer a bit of everything for everyone. They are usually targeted for families, but there are some subtle jokes that only adults will understand. This will keep every one of each age group entertained and happy while watching the performance.

There are various pantos happening around Malta if you have the chance make sure to visit the Manoel Theatre also. The theatre will host a panto and it will truly be a wonderful experience. The theatre is one of the oldest in Europe and it is a magnificent piece of architectural splendour. 

Whisky Festival 

Happening in Siggiewi on the 25th of January. This is an amazing time to try out some new Whisky and enjoy your time with family, friends and loved ones. Located in the beautiful Limestone Heritage, this is surely something not to be looked over.
