ALARME is a military re-enactment that portrays the historic and turbulent tenure of Malta by French troops, following Napoleon’s landing and conquest of the islands in 1798. The re-enactment gives an account of the French troops’ arrival in Malta, the subsequent attempt to administer the Maltese Islands by the new Republican government, the rebellion of the Maltese that led to the blockade of the French troops inside the harbour towns, as well as the French troops’ surrender to the British in 1800.
One may be able to visit part of the fort only prior to the re-enactment. Therefore it is advisable to enter the fort well before the show starts.
The re-enactments are held according to schedule as above. However, in case of inclement weather or else due to some unforeseen circumstance the event may be cancelled without prior notice. When in doubt it is best to contact the Tourist Information Office at Auberge D’Italie, Merchants Street, Valletta on tel: 00356 22915440/1/2.
