A very different look to Christmas and New Year in Gibraltar

 A very different look to Christmas and New Year in Gibraltar
  • Usual gatherings and attractions will not be held unless the pandemic situation improves but some of the celebrations will go online

The most magical time of the year is going virtual in Gibraltar this winter.

Unless the pandemic situation improves and the ban on large gatherings is lifted, the Christmas Festival of Lights, the Christmas attractions in John Mackintosh Square and the New Year's Celebrations at Casemates will not be held in their usual format but some will go online.

No decision has been taken yet about the Three Kings Parade on 5 January.

Culture Minister John Cortes said, "We will find a way to enjoy ourselves anyway, as we did on National Day."
