This year’s New Year’s Eve Celebrations will be held differently, and will not be seeing thousands of people flocking to Valletta, for what has now become tradition, as the massive celebrations will be shifting to everyone’s TV screens in one massive broadcast.
Kicking off at 10pm the NYE 2021 Valletta Variety Show will be hosted by Ben Camille and Andreana Debattista and will feature a live show by the Min Imissu?! clan, and a massive set by The Palace String Orchestra.
For those who are not familiar, the Palace String Orchestra, is a string-based ensemble, under the direction of Ryan Paul Abela. A little bird has told us that they will have some welcome additions to their normal ensemble, to make our NYE just a little bit special.
The Palace String Orchestra will be joined by AIDAN, Amber, Jasmine and Kevin Paul on the night. If Min Imissu and the PSO weren’t enough, Britain’s Got Talent 2020 Semi-Finalists, Ember Trio will be part of the show, which will close with a midnight fireworks display at the Grand Harbour.
“To ensure everyone can enjoy the tradition safely, this year’s celebrations will be televised only live from Fort St. Elmo, which means no crowds gathering. Performances are still planned, all at a safe distance, for viewers to enjoy for an at-home toast with music and entertainment to welcome 2021,” the organisers said.
