PBS.COM.MT REPORTS / MALTA – Mediterranean Conference Centre will in six weeks be turned into a massive television complex as Valletta will host the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
Seventeen countries, including Malta, are participating in this year’s edition. The theme chosen by Malta is “Embrace” which was inspired by core values of the contest: Connectivity, Diversity, Creativity and Respect.
The core of the contest will take place in Republic Hall which will see its stage converted into a modern television set with live audience. The production team has earlier this week shared the detail of how the stage will look like, during a Heads of Delegation meeting held in Malta. The stage and set are modern and energetic but will respect the characteristic features of the venue.
The delegations and the international press will have the opportunity to admire the beauty of other parts of the Mediterranean Conference Centre, as the building will cater for all the services related to the production. The marvellous Sacra Infermeria will introduce this year’s innovation, as it will be turned into a red carpet and green room with live audience.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest is meant to be a family show, and this led to a major change in the day and time of the broadcast. This year’s show will be shown live on Sunday 20th November at 16:00 local time.
