The British Institute was used after WW2 as a concert hall when some wonderful concertos were given at the time by Conductor Maestro Nani with Daphne Habib as the island's renowned concert pianist. Daphne Habib was invited by Queen Elisabeth to a garden party at Buckingham Palace honoring her as Malta's leading pianist and her contributions to Malta's culture.
