Changing of the Guard

The Changing of the Guard takes place from time to time in St. George’s Square in Valletta. The new guard is accompanied by the AFM Military Band and together they will leave Valletta City Gate at 10:00 and walk all the way through Republic Street until reaching the Presidential Palace in St George’s Square at around 10:15. Once there, a formal ceremony takes place in which sentries providing ceremonial guard duties at important institutions are replaced by a new batch of sentries. After the ceremony that changes the guard, the AFM Military Band will then head back to City Gate together with the old guard.
