A team made up of over 1,000 artists created a memory that will last forever as Malta celebrated this historical evening.  A crowd of over 110,000 is estimated to have enjoyed the celebrations in Valletta while others followed the show via live transmissions on social media and local TV.

Years in the making, Valletta 2018, better known as V18, will provide a feast of cultural events throughout the year.

Well done team V18!
