Summer Under the Stars: Thank You!

Now in its fifth week, the Summer Under the Stars series of culture and music has seen the Wignacourt become a stage for stand up comedy by the Wembley Store Boys, a backdrop to the neo-Maltese music of Nafra, a hybrid of history and acoustics for Stalko’s sold-out curated tour, and the setting for the farewell gig by Silver Linings.

Each of the great events has been a magical journey and, at the Wignacourt, we are tremendously happy to see that our wonderful clientele and friends of the Wignacourt have enjoyed it as much as we have.

It is also with great pleasure that we confirm that, even though summer’s about to come to a close, our cultural nights shall not be ending. Due to overwhelming demand, Stalko will be returning to provide the soundtrack to our curated tours not just this Thursday but also next!

On top of that, the Wembley Boys are also returning on 10 October and we have more great artists and events planned for after that too.

Enjoying summer under the stars

So, for now, all we’d like is: THANK YOU and see you all there!

Stalko will perform at the Wignacourt and the adjoining war shelters and catacombs on Thursday 19 September and Thursday 3 October 2013 from 9pm onwards, while the Wembley Boys will be on stage on Thursday 10 October 2013 from 9pm onwards. To book your places for both Stalko and the Wembley Store Boys please call on 2749 4905.

Wignacourt’s Silver Linings

A singing event by one of Wignacourt’s very own.

The Summer Under The Stars series of culture returns for the fourth week in a row this Thursday with Silver Linings, a group composed of singers Frederica Agius (one of the assistant curators at the Wignacourt) and Stephie Soler, with Josef Cassar on the violin, Peter Farrugia on the cajon, and Analise Cassar helping out with vocals.

“We’re excited to play at the Wignacourt Wine Garden – it’s the perfect venue for an end of summer gig and this will be our last gig for a while as Stephie is leaving on Erasmus soon!” says Frederica, one of the founders of Silver Linings.

“The Wignacourt has so much potential for gigs, as well as other performance arts, and we’re just happy to be part of it. They have given us a great opportunity to be involved and we hope people will join us for a relaxed evening with some popular songs we love listening to and playing!”

Both Frederica and Stephie are still at university reading for different Bachelors, nevertheless, they have played at a various events and venues – their favourite being a country and Western themed party last year.

They really enjoy doing covers and choosing songs they like playing and listening to, however, as Frederica told us, “we would love to write and play our own stuff and hopefully that will happen in the near future!”

Silver Linings will perform at the Wignacourt Wine Gardens on Thursday 12 September 2013 from 9pm. Please call on 2749 4905 to book your table.
