January Blues? Not a chance! Get busy planning with this fantastic lineup of activities that you can enjoy this month.

5. Comedy at Buskett

Mark Twain famously said that against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand. As the world battles through this pandemic, this quote is more empowering and laughter may be the antidote that we require.


Join the lovely family at Chateau Buskett on Saturday 30th January for a night of laughter and fun. The evening will be hosted by Colin Fitz and will feature stand-up comedy sets by Malcolm Galea, James Ryder, and Ed Vassallo. On the night there will also be a magic set by Gwilym Bugeja and a Burlesque interval by Undine LaVerve.

There are various ticketing options available suitable for couples and groups of friends:

2 tickets at €40

4 tickets at €70

4. Sky Walk with Free Fall Jump


To all the adrenaline junkies out there, this will definitely excite you! Join the adventure experts, MC Adventures, at the gorgeous cliffs at Migra l-Ferha for a walk to remember in the sky together with an awesome 20m freefall jump.

If you have never heard of sky walking, then we highly recommend that you watch ‘The Walk’. The movie documents Philippe Petit’s remarkable walk between the Twin Towers and World Trade Center back in 1974.

This is the kind of experience you want to pay for and at just €15, it’s a steal. To avoid disappointment, you may book your spot here.

1. Spice up your salad Workshop

Do you want to start making a salad that rocks? Something that you can show off to your family or friends? Salads are not meant to be boring and that is why the professional team at the Mediterranean Culinary Academy are here to spice up your salad in this 3-hour workshop at Carob Tree on 26th January and change your salad game forever.


A great salad is the perfect example of several individual components coming together to become something much greater than the sum of its parts. Therefore, during the session you will be preparing six individual recipes that can just as easily be prepared individually or brought together as a complete dish for a delicious combination of textures and flavors. Think about Yoghurt marinated chicken thighs, farro pilaf with caramelized onion, cumin and kale, coriander pickled carrots, mint chermoula, roast squash, spice roasted nuts. Sounds delicious right?

Do not worry about a thing as all the recipes, tools and ingredients you need for the session will be provided on the day. All that is asked is that you turn up on time. Once the cooking session is complete, you can choose to enjoy the fruits of your labour and dig into your meal with a glass of wine or take it home to share with your loved ones.
