Whether you’re looking for music, art, sport or charity events – you can be sure that all of them can be found in Gibraltar this May. Here are some favourites of the Eliott Hotel team:
Gibraltar PDC Darts Open
Darts were historically used and it is a practice that later on turned into a game. Did you know that before the First World War, pubs in the United Kingdom had dartboards made from solid blocks of wood. They had to be soaked overnight to heal the holes made by the darts.
Between the 12th and 14th of May 2017, the Gibraltar PDC Darts Open will be held within a more modern and professional environment with an offering of £135.000 in prize money. Some of the world’s top darts stars will return to The Rock for the fifth staging of the Gibraltar Darts Trophy. 48 players will compete at the Victoria Stadium, with the tournament being streamed online worldwide. Tickets for the different sessions are available on www.buytickets.gi
