A play which was written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1967 sovereignty referendum will be performed at the John Mackintosh Hall from 18 to 20 January.

'The Winds of Change' is based on the decade leading up to the 1967 Referendum. It was co-written by Jackie Villa and Andrew Dark, has a cast of over 30 and was written specifically for the Referendum's 50th anniversary.

Deputy chief minister Dr Joseph Garcia, who coordinated the recent referendum anniversary events said he was delighted with the idea of this play and hoped everyone who lived through the tumultuous events of the 1960s in Gibraltar will come to see it.

Tickets cost £12 on Thursday and Friday and £14 for the gala night on Saturday.
