This year the festival is honoured that HRH the Princess Royal has agreed to be the Patron of the festival and the Gibraltar Tourist Board (GTB) is already in discussions with headline speakers with an announcement to be made in the coming weeks.
The success of the previous three years has been very encouraging said a Government statement with the Gibraltar Tourist Board looking forward to an equally exciting festival in 2016.
