In search of the Maltese Falcon

About This Project

These famous words, taken from the opening credits of the hit 1941 film ‘The Maltese Falcon’, set the theme for this exciting event.


Delegates become detectives on a mission to find the Maltese Falcon. Along the way, they participate in a fun and exciting adventure that links the detective story with mystery and culture. Participants are placed into small detective teams and, after a quick briefing, are instructed to embark on the mission of a lifetime. As they proceed through the event, they will encounter a number of characters who will give them further information on the locations they will be visiting. This treasure hunt is an original and alternative (not to mention fun) way of discovering the istorical treasures that the Maltese Islands have to offer, whilst at the same time participating in a great event that will exercise your ability to work together as a team. Successful completion of the event will depend on teamwork, keen observation and creativity.
