Action packed and highly entertaining 3 course family dinner show based on the Great Siege of Malta. 50 performers and 8 trained horses, staged at "The Arena" at Montekristo Estates. Not a historical re-enactment but a truly spectacular show where...more

First of all there is an extensive documentary film all about the Knights of St. John. The film ran for about 30 minutes. How interesting! Following there was a tour lasting 30 mins of wax exhibits further expanding on the history of the Knights which...More

My wife and I visited Malta a couple of years ago and enjoyed the island so much that we revisited it in Oct 2015 with our daughter. Last time around we took in a very enjoyable show we believe was called “The Malta Nights Extravaganza”...More

Our trip for the dinner show was organised through the local Sun Spot tours agent, not to be confused with Mercury Direct UK tour operators. This was our second tour through this local agency and as they were 35 minutes late for the first tour...More

This spectacular really is. If you like big bangs and pageants this is for you. Colourful, noisy and informative. Warning - some of the bangs are really loud. They fire real cannons.

Through the medium of song and dance, 3 horses try to bring the history of Malta to life aided by about two dozen humans. It is an imaginative interpretation of Maltese history - I previously had no idea that Neolithic folk had a flair for...More

What can I say? An interesting way of spending an evening. The spectacle was on something of a small scale but, nevertheless, well done. A series of tableaux depicting transition from pre-history to the present time. It was a bit patchy with large gaps. Some...More
