The University of Gibraltar in conjunction with its Silver Education Key Advisory Group are proud to present the fourth series of its popular history lectures. 

The University’s Gibraltar History Lectures aim to educate and enhance the community’s knowledge of Gibraltar-related subjects as well as stimulate discussions amongst attendees. Delivered by expert guest speakers, these weekly talks are free and open to the public.

Series 4 promises to be as interesting and diverse as always, with topics covered including Yanito Heritage, the 1969 border closure, Gibraltar’s horse racing track and our relationship with the European Union.

As an initiative of the Silver Education Key Advisory Group the series is primarily aimed at the over 55’s community, however, all are welcome. All you need to do is register your attendance either calling us on + 350 200 71000 or sending an email to
