As part of the festivities in honour of the founder of the Order of Preachers, St.Dominic of Gusman, the King's Own Band will on Saturday 1st August, 2009 participate by organising a march through the main streets of Valletta between 9am and 1pm. The march will start and end in front of the church dedicated to our Lady of Safe Havens and St.Dominic, situated in lower Merchants Street. At 10am the band will salute H.E. The President of Malta by playing the national anthem as it passes through Republic Street in front of the President's Palace.
In the evening then the same band will hold a concert close to the church of Our Lady of Safe Havens and St.Dominic just after the liturgical service inside the church ends. The concert is free of charge and all are welcome to attend.
