Valletta 2018 chairman Jason Micallef told 89.7 Bay: ‘This is a special year for Valletta, and it is therefore fitting that we end it with a celebration which is equally special.

‘After successfully executing a cultural programme with almost 400 events this year, this event will be one of the last in Valletta 2018’s calendar, which, like the rest, will surely remain etched in the European Capital of Culture’s legacy.

‘Once again, St George’s Square will host a huge celebration which will attract thousands of Maltese families and tourists to Valletta to celebrate the New Year as one large community.’

Firework displays and special effects will also be part of the festivities, creating a magical and colourful atmosphere in the capital.
