Once again BirdLife Malta will be at this year’s Notte Bianca, Malta’s biggest annual arts and culture festival!

For one special night every October, Notte Bianca – Lejl Imdawwal lights up the Valletta cityscape with a spectacular celebration that is open to the public free of charge.

Festivalgoers can expect to experience the very best in music, dance, theatre, visual arts, literary events, as well as an exploration into the emerging world of new and digital arts. During Notte Bianca, Valletta’s streets and public spaces are used in innovative, creative ways thanks to a mix of roaming and site-specific projects.

As part of its fringe programme – Notte Bianca Atmosfera – Valletta also opens its state palaces, museums, historical buildings, and art galleries to the public free of charge to showcase visual art exhibitions and theatre performances. Streets and piazzas are transformed into venues for open-air theatrics and concerts, while many cafes and restaurants extend their hours. Everywhere you turn, you are bound to stumble upon another festival treat!

All of Valletta, from City Gate to Fort St. Elmo, comes alive on Notte Bianca, guaranteeing a memorable night that truly holds something for everyone. 

Where to find us

You will find our stand at the Upper Barrakka Gardens which will be hosting Notte Bianca Villaġġ – a trade fair for various entities and local NGOs who will be exhibiting and promoting their services and organisations.

Visit our stand to explore how technology and research help us protect seabirds and their habitats in Malta. The whole family can join in and become a shearwater expert! Come and discover why learning more about wildlife is essential to conserve it.

These activities will show some of the amazing work of our LIFE Arċipelagu Garnija project.
