As you are aware, we were planning to hold a concert by Kateriana Fenech on Monday 9th April.  Unfortunately, we have had problems with the venue and have had to postpone it.  Instead , we are now organising a visit to the Mdina Cathedral Museum, thanks to Gerald Montanaro Gauci.

Monday 9th April at 7.30pm, visit to Mdina Cathedral Museum.  We shall be shown round by the curator of the Museum, Mons Edgar Vella.  The Museum shall be offering us a complimentary drink after the tour to give us some time to socialise.

The museum houses an eclectic and rich collection of historical artefacts, including engravings by Rembrandt, woodcuts and copper plates by Albrecht Durer, archived documents from the Inquisition, a rare coin collection spanning 2000 years, a set of 15 Silver and Gold statues of the Apostles, and a silver collection bequeathed to the cathedral museum by Dr Jimmy Farrugia, former Speaker of Malta’s House of Representatives.

For more details about the museum, visit https://www.metropolitanchapter.com/mdina-metropolitan-museum/

Please bring your partners and guests.  Bookings with secretary Tonio Cuschieri, tonio.cuschieri@gmail.com or through the website.

I shall be collecting 10 euros per person as a donation to the Museum, which will go towards the restoration and conservation of items in need.
