MIDI plc welcomes the public to the next open day at Fort Manoel on Sunday 02nd June 2019 between 0900hrs and 1700hrs.

Come and enjoy a day at Fort Manoel where besides admiring the French military architecture of the Fort as built by Knights of St. John and the restoration efforts undertaken by Midi you can enjoy and learn about the Romans of the 1st Century. The Legio X Fretensis re-enactment group will carry out drills, sketches and involve the public in Roman period re-enactments during the open day. The re-enactment group was founded in October 2006 and represents the military and civilian life of the Romans of the 1st century. The group portrays different officers such as the tribune, centurion, optio and standard bearers. The civilian aspect is represented by women in different roles and a senator. The group will convert part of the Fort's Pjazza into a Roman camp settlement through scenes typical of that time, military formation and tactics and educational talks. The equipment displayed by Legio X Fretensis has been obtained from reliable sources based on archaeological discoveries and is well researched.

A tour of the Fort will be held at 11.00 am by the fort's curator Arc. Edward Said.

Midi plc welcomes you at the Fort for its open day. Entrance is free.
